THE EARLIER THE BETTER
Please read PROVERBS 8:17
Good things are better done at early time than at midnight when you would be too weak or too blind to do anything.
That is why people send their children to school at tender age to study and learn how to become useful when they grow up.
That is also why people learn work and trade when they were young so that they can establish a business or set up a workshop to prepare a good future for themselves.
That is also why people go to work or office early in order to meet up with their daily obligations and still return home early to spend some time with their loved ones.
It is always good to do the right thing at the right time when your strength and energy can still carry you to make a quality impacts.
God created man to know him, serve him and worship him all the days of his life (Ecc 12:13) but because of cares and worries over riches and materialism, everyone went astray in pursuit of earthly things and forgot God and his purpose for creating us.
We all forgot God and made him a secondary agenda after our businesses, families, marriages, money and pleasure.
Most of us only remember God when we are facing some challenges and difficulties in our businesses, offices or homes, but God says in our memory verse (Pro 8:17)
*I love those who love me And those who seek me diligently will find me*
In Isaiah 55:6 God says
*Seek the Lord while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near.*
There is always a good and better time to do the right thing in order to avoid the trouble of trying to play catch up games.
Most people assume that they are too young, too beautiful or too important in the society to submit to God and serve him in spirit and in truth.
But the scripture says in lamentations 3:27 .
*It is good for a man to bear The yoke (Cross) in his youth*
In Amos 5:4 it says
*For thus says the Lord to the house of Israel: Seek Me and live* And in verse 14 it says
*Seek good and not evil, That you may live; So the Lord God of hosts will be with you*
To seek God is to be holy, righteous, pure and perfect.
It is to take your hands away from immorality, idol worship, occultism and iniquity.
The bible says in Ecclesiastes 12:1 .
*Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come, And the years draw near when you say, I have no pleasure in them.*
Remember God now when you are strong, healthy and alive, not when are too weak, too old or too sick to concentrate .
Remember God now that you have the energy and stamina to do things on your own volition, not when you might be on wheelchair or sickbed and being carried to churches and prayer houses by other people.
Do not allow ugly circumstances of poverty, hardship, affliction, sickness or disease to bring you to the house of God.
Do not allow the uncomfortable bed of problems to carry you to the presence of God.
Remember God today that you are fit, healthy and alive to dance to the glory of the almighty God.
TO SERVE GOD IS A SOLEMN DUTY TO MAN.
*EARLIER THE BETTER*
