Wise counsel

Commencement speakers often speak of goals, success, hard work, serving others, etc.

But how many include this passage in their remarks: “Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth . . .” (Ecclesiastes 12:3)?

Are we accidents, or are we here on purpose? There’s no question how the Bible answers: “Remember also your Creator in the days of your youth . . . .”

Alexander Maclaren wrote, “If ever you turn to God in your older days, nothing will be so painful as the remembrance that you forgot Him so long” (Maclaren’s Expositions of Holy Scripture, Vol. 3, 405).

Wise response

God wants to be far more than our Creator. He longs to become our Redeemer and Father as well.

For this to happen, we must let Him.

And the sooner the better.
