YouthJanuary 1, 2017
“Youth is wasted on the young.” – George Bernard Shaw
“Youth comes but once in a lifetime”. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
“Give me just one generation of youth, and I will transform the whole world”. – Vladimir Lenin.
Ecclesiastes 11:9 You who are young, be happy while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all these things God will bring you into judgment.
The prime of your life, when you are the most energetic. The most enthusiastic and awesome phase of life. “Tiredness” does not exist in your dictionary. Staying late till 2 am and waking up at 7 am is no problem at all. You are fearless and dynamic. It is when you are willing to give the most. You want to prove to the world your stand. You are willing to take risks. You are hopeful of what is to come. Full of determination, you can accomplish anything and everything you set your mind to. You are your own motivation, nothing stands in your path. Our forefathers wished God had put youth at the end of life when they have acquired wisdom so that they may have had done things differently. Our grandfathers and grandmothers sometimes reminisce about their sweetest memories from youth. The most enjoyable memories are from youth.
The youths are the prophesied protagonists of the Bible that will accomplish the last gospel mission
Psalms 110:3 Your troops will be willing on your day of battle. Arrayed in holy splendor, your young men will come to you like dew from the morning’s womb.
Some say youths are the hope of the future, they have the power to change the world. How then, would you want to spend your youth?
