Remember creator

  1. 1. 1
  2. 2. 2
  3. 3. Ecclesiastes 11:9-10 (NKJV) 9 Rejoice, O young man, in your youth, And let your heart cheer you in the days of youryouth; Walk in the ways of your heart, And in the sight of your eyes; But know that for all these God will bring you into judgment.10 Therefore remove sorrow from your heart, And put away evil from your flesh, For childhood and youth are vanity. 3
  4. 4. Ecclesiastes 12:1-14 (NKJV)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": 2 While the sun and the light, The moon and thestars, Are not darkened, And the clouds do not return after the rain; 4
  5. 5. Ecclesiastes 12:1-14 (NKJV)3 In the day when the keepers of thehouse tremble, And the strong men bow down; When the grinders cease because they are few, And those that look through the windows grow dim; 5
  6. 6. Ecclesiastes 12:1-14 (NKJV)4 When the doors are shut in thestreets, And the sound of grinding is low; When one rises up at the sound of a bird, And all the daughters of music are brought low; 6
  7. 7. Ecclesiastes 12:1-14 (NKJV)5 Alsothey are afraid of height, And ofterrors in the way; When the almond tree blossoms, The grasshopper is a burden, And desire fails. For man goes to his eternal home, And the mourners go about the streets. 7
  8. 8. Ecclesiastes 12:1-14 (NKJV) 6 Remember your Creator before thesilver cord is loosed, Or the golden bowl is broken, Or the pitcher shattered at the fountain, Or the wheel broken at the well. 7 Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it. 8
  9. 9. Ecclesiastes 12:1-14 (NKJV)8 "Vanity of vanities," says the Preacher, "All is vanity." 9 And moreover, because thePreacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yes, he pondered and sought out and set in order many proverbs. 10 The Preacher sought to find acceptable words;and what was written was upright--words of truth. 9
  10. 10. Ecclesiastes 12:1-14 (NKJV)11 The words of the wise are like goads,and the words of scholars are like well-driven nails, given by one Shepherd. 12And further, my son, be admonished by these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is wearisome to the flesh. 10
  11. 11. Ecclesiastes 12:1-14 (NKJV) 13 Let us hear the conclusion of thewhole matter: Fear God and keep Hiscommandments, For this is mans all. 14 For God will bring every work into judgment, Including every secret thing, Whether good or evil. 11
