Have you ever thought, I’ll serve God when I get older? It can be tempting. The idea of doing whatever you want as a young person, and then living for God when you’re older can seem like a good one. However, the Bible advises against this.
Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come and the years approach when you will say, “I find no pleasure in them” – Ecclesiastes 12:1 (NIV)
The thing is, there’s not really a great time to start living for God. If you push it off until you’re older, then when will be old enough? At what point do you think, now I’m ready? If you’re like most people, you’ll keep pushing it off and pushing it off, and possibly never make that commitment.
Instead, why wait? Why put off making a decision for Christ? Decide that you’ll go all out for God. Let Him direct your paths and give you the peace and contentment that you desire. Don’t put off making the decision to live for God. Decide that today is a good day to live for Him.
