*TOPIC: DON’T EAT YOUR FUTURE LIKE ESAU*
*Bible Text: Ecclesiastes 12:1 NIV*
*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”*
Whether we listen to this advice or not, it doesn’t affect God. As a youth, you are either useful or become useless in life, the choice is yours. No matter your beauty today, it will wane and become unappealing one day.
Beauty and talents can be a blessing and it can be a curse, depending on how you manage it. Many people lost their great destiny because of their inability to manage the beauty God has giving them.
Today, sexual immorality is one of the most powerful tools adopted by the devil to attack the Teens and Young adult. There is no glory in shame and you will never walk your way to stardom by selling your birthright like Esau.
There are young ladies selling their birthright for financial gains and social connections. There are young guys flitting around in the name of social exposure. You are not enjoying life but selling your birthright that you will weep for tomorrow. The consequences of today’s action are not always immediate. Esau never knew he has lost something great the day he sold his birthright for a plate of postage.
There is more to life than sex, money & association. All these will never guarantee fulfillment until you have discovered, pursued and maximize your potentials to fulfill your destiny. Stop chasing shadows.
Your purpose in life is your number one assignment to discover. If you can’t find meaning to life personally, the wrong association will offer you the devil’s meaning of life and it would be the opposite of God’s plan.
There is no pain without gain. You are either sacrificing today or wasting your tomorrow. There is no permanent situation in life for those who aspire but if you let your background push you to unripe blessing, you will destroy your great expectations.
Don’t run ahead of time. God has time and season for everything under heaven. What seems to be the best today will be irrelevant tomorrow. It was blackberry a few years ago but today, those with blackberry can’t even flaunt it, meanwhile many souls perished because yahoo boys promised them blackberry.
Slay queen, you are too precious to perish. Those who were your boyfriend two years ago, where are they today? Probably your Ex. Life is given and take and always remember, you can’t eat your cake and have it. You are either eating the future or investing in the future. The choice is yours.
Wait for your time. Don’t copy anybody’s lifestyle. Young guys should focus more on personal development. Only irresponsible people beg for association, when you have what it takes to associate, you will command invitation.
Stop trying to live for today alone, start thinking on how to fulfill your destiny.
For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in obedience to him, and to keep his commands, decrees, and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. – Deut. 30:16
God bless you.
