Whether Young or Old
Today’s Through the Bible Reading: Ecclesiastes 11-12; Psalm 73, 88
Abbreviated Reading: Ecclesiastes 12
“Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth…” Ecclesiastes 12:1
Ahh – youth! The energy and zeal wound tight in youth is wonderful. But it fades such that one day you wake up and wonder what it was like to be young. That was Solomon’s sentiment in today’s reading. He recounts the joy of youth - when experience had not yet produced the pain that gives life pause - when he had the excitement and energy to do whatever his heart and mind dreamed.
