Youth is the best part of anybody’s life.  It is the time when one’s as they call it as the prime of life.  Youth is a phase, where the mind is open to the knowledge of the world; the body is ready for physical activities and both these are put to optimal use.  But the Lord gently reminds us that there is a soul in men, that yearns for God and it is in such a prime of time (youth) that the Lord requires us to remember Him as He says in;

Ecclesiastes 12:1; “Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say; I have no pleasures in them;”

The Lord also knows once your youth fades, the cares and worries of life will slowly creep into one’s life.  Therefore it is good to remember our creator in one’s teens. 

May God bless you and keep you from all evil in the days to come.
