King Solomon, Why Remember In Our Youth?

Here we have an excellent post. The subject is making the best use of our lives. Rudy, pointing to a passage from Ecclesiastes, advocates school choice.

What is the alternative? Consider my last post, the last in a series on whether God or government gives us our rights. When we are old — when we have finally begun to accept the temporary nature of our earthly existence — we may then start to contemplate the eternal questions we had before set aside. Then we will realize that if God gave us life He gave us everything, that if we have not been living with God foremost in our lives, we have been living in futility.

What our government-run schools teach children to do is to focus on their careers, a thing of this world we call advancement ( When the old know the emptiness of such an idol, why do we insist upon foisting it upon our children?

If you read history you will find that the Christians who did most for the present world were precisely those who thought most of the next. It is since Christians have largely ceased to think of the other world that they have become so ineffective in this. — by C. S. Lewis

If we want to succeed in this life, don’t we have to be ready for the next?

King Solomon

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)

What’s My Point?

Ecclesiastes Chapter 12 verses are best comprehended by people who have become old and have “wised up” to recognize what was most important in their lives. Their bodies have become old and frail and they soon know it will be their time to meet their Creator.

Many may have spent their…
