Each decision you make goes towards defining who you are. It’s akin to building a house. You begin with the important parts such as the foundation, the studs, and drywall. As you become older many things become set in stone, very much a part of you. To change something such as the foundation is much more difficult than one of the paintings on the wall.
As young children, the environment and wisdom that our parents/elders/peers nurture are much of what builds that foundation.
Yet the ages of 15 – 25 also seem to be very important. (Specifically for boys) This is the time when one establishes who he will be. The good lessons he learned as a child will help him to develop. As a Christian, he must take what he has been taught and turn it into something worthwhile.
Every year, every month, every day, every hour, every minute, and every second that you waste with foolish/evil things is time that will you will never get back. If you let evil characteristics grow and blossom, they will eventually become part of that foundation and no longer just an ugly painting on the wall.
