Ecclesiastes 11:9-10

MSG 9 You who are young, make the most of your youth. Relish your youthful vigor. Follow the impulses of your heart. If something looks good to you, pursue it. But know also that not just anything goes; You have to answer to God for every last bit of it. NIV 9 Be happy, young man, while you are young, and let your heart give you joy in the days of your youth. Follow the ways of your heart and whatever your eyes see, but know that for all these things God will bring you to judgment. MSG 10 Live footloose and fancy free - You won't be young forever. Youth lasts about as long as smoke. NIV 10 So then, banish anxiety from your heart and cast off the troubles of your body, for youth and vigor are meaningless.
