John Bradshaw - A Message to Young People
If anyone was qualified to speak to young people about their life and faith, it was Solomon. He wasn't a young man when he wrote Ecclesiastes, which is why he could write with clarity. He understood young people have it rough, they're still figuring out life, there are so many distractions, peer pressure is intense.
But Solomon could speak as someone who had tried it all, and learned the hard way that it's all, as he put it "vanity". Addressing young people he wrote, "Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, 'I have no pleasure in them'".
While you're young, the wise man wrote, remember your Creator. It's better to make wise decisions you won't regret. A young person who chooses to put God first is a young person that has a bright future. I'm John Bradshaw, for It Is Written.
