Wisdom (9)

In Ecclesiastes, chapter 11, the writer gives some wisdom to young people. But I think that people of all ages can learn from these wise teachings.

The writer encourages young people to do whatever their hearts lead them to do. But he also adds a warning in Ecclesiastes 11:9. “So young people, enjoy yourselves while you are young. Be happy. Do whatever you heart leads you to do. Do whatever you want, but remember that God will judge you for everything you do.”

Then the writer continues by reminding young people to not let their anger control them or let their bodies lead them to sin. The world is filled with so many temptations for young people today. Young people need to remember to be wise and not foolish. Finally, in the beginning of Ecclesiastes, chapter 12, the writer tells young people to remember God and obey Him.

Whether you are young or old, it is good for you to carefully follow and obey God’s Word, the Bible, every day. Don’t waste the time God has given to you. Use your time to serve and honor Him!
