Three Nails That Must Be Firmly Fixed If You Want to Live Without Regret
1. Three Nails That Must Be Firmly Fixed If You Are to Live Without Regret (Ecclesiastes 11:9-12:14)
If you are born between the years of 1980 and 2005, you are a millennial. If you are one of these individuals, society tells us that you seek three things from your adult years and career: Accountability – You don’t just want to do a job without other people notice and that they hold you accountable for. Sustainability – You don’t want to do something that won’t stick around, you want a legacy. Impact – You don’t want to do something that won’t “change the world.”
For a millennial Christian, Solomon has advice. Advice to establish accountability, sustainability, and impact in your Christian life so that you do not live with regret in your later years. Here’s what Solomon says.
Follow only those desires that won’t:
1.1. Mess up the end game. (11:9, 12:13-14)
1.2. Take away peace or add stress/pain in your later years. (11:10)
1.3. Keep you from doing great things for God while you’re young. (12:1-8)
