Remember your Creator, Now!

Solomon said, "Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth..." (Ecclesiastes 12:1). He knew the importance of bringing up children with a constant awareness of their Creator. To realize they were made by a personal God, not a mere accident in an impersonal universe. To recognize their responsibility to their Maker, and the certainty of judgment.

What we see in America today in the delinquency of adults is certainly the fruit of more than a century of Darwinism.

Darwinism directly contradicts the wise injunction of Solomon. Darwinism preaches that we should forget our Creator! The next step is to deny responsibility and judgment. If Chance is ruling the universe and determining the course of our lives, then we had best grab everything we can while we can.

Many of the inner conflicts we and our children have are rooted in our tendency to forget our Creator. His sovereignty and His love, His law and His grace, His justice and His mercy, His power and His glory, His wisdom and His purposes: remembering these will answer to our conflicts.

Remember NOW thy Creator!
