KEY VERSEEcclesiastes 12:13
That’s the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty.

In the end, I will judge every deed—nothing will be hidden or forgotten. So take time now to repent of unwise or rebellious choices. Regardless of your age, it is never too early or too late to seek me. Set aside your wants and desires and turn to me. When you surrender your life, you may be surprised I have similar goals and dreams for you. But pursue them in faith, according to my plan, and you are more likely to enjoy the process and find success.

Each day, you are getting older. Don’t be surprised by it or fear the aging process. Instead, let it remind you to live each day to the fullest. Live with expectation and hope. Count the cost for how you choose to live. More importantly, don’t sit back and watch. Jump in. I will provide for you every step of the way. As long as you are alive, I have plans for you.

Live wisely and with purpose. If you are an adult, have you put together your will or updated it recently? Are you still living in faith and following God? If you are a teen or young adult, are you pursuing the dreams and goals God has placed on your heart?
