…IN THE DAYS OF OUR YOUTH — May 24, 2012


Ecclesiastes 12: 1-8

Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come
and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them”—
 before the sun and the light and the moon and the stars grow dark,
and the clouds return after the rain; when the keepers of the house tremble,
and the strong men stoop, when the grinders cease because they are few,
and those looking through the windows grow dim; when the doors to the street are closed
and the sound of grinding fades; when people rise up at the sound of birds,
but all their songs grow faint; when people are afraid of heights
and of dangers in the streets; when the almond tree blossoms
and the grasshopper drags itself along and desire no longer is stirred.
Then people go to their eternal home and mourners go about the streets.

Note:  Good advice from the wisest man who lived. (Solomon, whom God gave great wisdom).  We may wait too long to remember our Creator…and our minds may not be able to, but we would have had countless opportunities and spurned them.  How sad and how tragic, but how blessed are the ones who remember Him in the days of their youth!
