The Koforidua Effiduase Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Daniel Yeboah Nsaful, has called on young people to take advantage of the opportunities that come their way in their youthful days.
Apostle Nsaful said this during the Effiduase Area Youth Camp Meeting which took place at St. Paul’s Technical School in Kukurantumi from August 28 to 31, 2019. It was attended by over 250 youth in the Area.
Speaking on the theme, “Planning Your Life As A Christian Youth” based on Proverbs 6:6, John 9:4 and Luke 14:28-32, Apostle Nsaful indicated that planning is a very essential component that must be present in the life of every Christian.
He defined planning as “the act of making detailed arrangements of a goal you want to achieve in the future.”
He, therefore, urged the youth to make the most of their youthful days through careful and efficient planning. “Planning involves investing in the present so you can reap success in the future,” he said, adding, “Consequently, Jesus advised that we work while it is day, for night comes when no one can work; this is the purpose of planning.”
Apostle Yeboah Nsaful further expounded that life on earth is like putting up a building, which requires good planning from the foundation to the finish.
“The things you do in your youth is like a foundation you are laying to put up the rest of the building. If you want your building to stand the test of time, you have to lay a solid foundation and that necessitates planning.
“Procrastination, laziness and lack of planning are recipes for failure; don’t be a victim.
“A good plan requires that you set a goal, have a dream, choose a course you have mastery over, design a roadmap, persevere, be patient, manage your time efficiently, gather information about your dream, pray about your dream and work diligently on them,” he advised, adding: “Planning is the beginning of the roadmap to success.”
