Stages of Life

Life changes as we age. Younger years may be marked by more time for play. In time responsibility and age changes what a person can do. The scripture passage Ecclesiastes 11:912:7 maps out the progress of life. Although change is certain how we handle it is up to us. Let us follow Jesus in our early years and follow Him throughout the stages of our life.
