My daughter, Dana, turned 22 recently. She’s at the beginning of a life journey that I am more than half-way through. She has so much of life ahead of her. So many great adventures to still experience.
I started thinking today about what I wish I knew when I was a young 22-year-old. And I realized it isn’t too late for you and me to apply Moses’ instruction in Psalm 90:12 to “number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
These are the 10 things I wish I knew at age 22 (and the 10 things I want my daughter to know now so she can live wisely and well):
1. People will come and go in our lives, but the One who loves us most will never leave. Therefore, His opinion matters more than anyone else’s.
