Q59: What would my future be?

It plainly depends on the choices you make with what comes your way. Some choose to moan and protest that life has been hard so ‘I will sit down and cry’. Others will see a problem that is really not a problem and make it their business to tell everybody how unlucky they are. Another makes friends with some group who they know ‘do crimes’ and it seems exciting. That is, until they finish up in jail because they all got caught. There is a great saying: “You lie down with dogs – you get up with fleas.” One good true friend is more valuable than gold and diamonds. They never gossip, lie to you or cheat. Hang on to that friend, and make yourself a true, reliable friend to that one. Such friendships can last a lifetime. King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived wrote in the Bible 3,000 years ago, “If you want favour with both God and man and a reputation for good judgement and common sense, then trust the Lord completely, don’t ever trust yourself. In everything you do, put God first and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success.” (Proverbs 3:5-6). Wisdom can be had too. Another Proverb goes: “The man who knows right from wrong, has good judgement and common sense is happier than the man who immensely rich.” (Proverbs 3:13–15). Whatever you do, do not seek to see the future from clairvoyants, or fortunetellers, EVER!
