A life without God can produce a bitter, lonely, and hopeless old age. A life centered around God is fulfilling; it makes the days of old age-when disabilities, sickness, and handicaps can become barriers to enjoying life-satisfying because of the hope of eternal life. Being young is exciting.
But the excitement of youth can become a barrier to closeness with God if it makes young people focus on passing pleasures instead of eternal values. Make your strength available to God when it is still yours-during your youthful years. Don’t waste it on evil or meaningless activities that become bad habits and make you callous. Seek God now.
