Young people should be compelled to use their time wisely. They should be encouraged to gain life skills and knowledge.
To use time wisely, they must be taught the following 4 things:
1. To ask for help and get as much advice as they can.
2. To never do anything that violates their conscience.
“There’s money in it…” is a phrase that has ruined a LOT of men and women.
3. To pay attention to the things that they can do better than other things. It's an indicator, not a guarantee, that they will likely be successful in that.
4. To take advantage of the opportunities that are reasonably within their reach, and make the most of them.
Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.
