My people have a proverb which says, “A fool does only at the end what a wise man does at the beginning.”
This is very wise, indeed. Many young people neglect what they are supposed to do and only think about it in old age after wasting many years.
If you plant a fruit tree as a youth, you can expect to harvest fruit from it for many years. If you wait till you are old, you may not enjoy the pleasure of seeing it bear fruit.
Wise people give their lives to God when young. They do not wait for old age to do that.
Set your goals and begin taking responsible decisions and actions when you are young. Do not wait till you are old.
