Remember God while you are young
So people are happy when they see the sun.
You should do that even if you live to a very old age.
You may live for many years but, in the end, you will die.
And you will be dead for a very long time.
There is nothing that means anything after that.
Do the things that you want to do.
The things that you see will give you pleasure, too.
But God watches the things that you do. You should remember that.
He will want to know why you did those things.
And do not cause your body to have pain.
You will not always be young.
We all become old too quickly.
In future years, you will say, ‘I do not enjoy my life any longer.’
And will you not see the moon or the stars.
There will always be black clouds in the sky.
Your legs will become weak.
You will have only a few teeth.
Your eyes will not see well.
You will not hear the noise of people at their work.
At night, you will not sleep well.
But you will hear the birds when they sing. Then you will wake up because of that.
You will be afraid to walk along a road.
Your hair will become white.
It will be like white flowers on a bush.
You will feel very tired all the time.
And you will not want to have sex any longer.
We will all die in the end.
When we die, people will be sad.
Many of them will be on the streets.
And they will cry because we have died.
The water pot will break. The
You will not get water from the well any longer.
People will bury our dead bodies under the ground.
I have seen all the things that happen on the earth.
None of them has a purpose.
