Have you ever thought about what you will be doing at each stage of your life? Our youth did just that last week.
We gave the youth an A1 sheet of paper with columns for 16, 21, 30, 45, 60, 80 and ? years old. Armed with catalogues and magazines they cut out the things they wanted to have or to do at each age of their lives. Our lads had a PS3, Audi sports cars, aftershave, a bride, a teas-maid, incontinence pants and a Wispa Gold advert.
The advert got them thinking. Here’s what it said for the end of life after rearranging the words of the advert:
The sentiment of the advert, when rearranged, reflect the words of Psalm 103:15-16
As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.
Life is short, but the gospel of Jesus Christ gives sinners the hope of eternal life:
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
