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 (Ecclesiastes 12:1).
Pay close attention to the word “now.” We tend to put off the really important changes in our lives. Resolutions are made each new year and the majority of those are soon forgotten. We’ll find another day for diet and exercise.
Sadly, many people treat their faith like those resolutions. They put off getting serious about the Lord because they foolishly think they have another day. “All such boasting is evil” (James 4:17). We are not guaranteed another day.
Both young and old should pay close attention to this verse: “Remember now thy Creator.” Do not put off developing your relationship with God. Delaying obedience to God simply solidifies bad habits.
