Psalms 48:14 For this God is our God forever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.

1 Corinthians1:8 He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

Today I enter a new decade. Each year we walk on this earth brings us closer to the end of our walk here. I’ve searched the scriptures and can’t find the word retirement in them. Retirement and “golden years” are terms made up in our modern culture. God designed us to follow His decrees and work to prepare the people on this earth for the coming of His Kingdom. Nowhere does it say spend all of your later years traveling, playing games or sports and generally just have fun. When we no longer find ourselves going to a job to earn income for our sustenance we are blessed with more time for the blessing of serving our God more completely. In my younger years I never thought God would enable me to preach His Word or write devotions every day. Though I still work for income I find more time to immerse myself in God. I still play golf and socialize but find my desire more and more in speaking forth His Word. He blessed me in the work of His service in my younger years and we are called to spread His Word all of our years. As we look to years passing let us (regardless of what decade we are in) be sure to keep our priorities straight. Let us also practice being in the present and not always looking to the future. Our eternal life started the day we accepted Jesus into our lives. Let’s not pass from one day to the next with regrets. Let us “stay strong to the end” in our love, devotion and work God appointed us to do.
