"Remember, now, your Grand Creator in the days of your young manhood." (Ecclesiastes 12:1)

Jehovah views Christian youths as precious and as refreshing as dewdrops. Indeed, he foretold that on the day of his Son's "military force," young men and women would "offer themselves willingly" in Christ's service. (Psalm 110:3) That prophecy was to be fulfilled at at time when people in general were godless, obsessed with self and money, and disobedient. Yet, Jehovah knew that young people who worshipped him would be different. What confidence he has in you young brothers and sisters! Remembering Jehovah involves more than merely calling him to mind. It means taking action—doing what pleases him, letting his laws and principles guide us in daily life. It also means trusting in Jehovah, knowing that he has our very best interests at heart. (Psalm 37:3; Isaiah 48:17, 18) Is that how you feel about your Grand Creator?
