While Solomon was the author of this book in God's Constitution and wrote it late in his life, the point becomes even clearer. He was speaking to young people "My son, hear the instruction of your father, and do not forsake the law of your mother" "My son, if you receive my words, and treasure my commands within you" "My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands" Solomon was encouraging them to learn the lessons that he had learned over the course of his extraordinary life.
When he stated "walk in the ways of your heart", it wasn't an invitation to live a lustful and disobedient life of sensual pleasure. And you shall have the tassel, that you may look upon it and remember all the commandments of the Lord and do them, and that you may not follow the harlotry to which your own heart and your own eyes are inclined. Instead, it urges young people to enjoy themselves completely while not forgetting that the Lord God will review the quality of their behavior and lifestyle. In essence, they will answer in time of judgment.
I said in my heart, “God shall judge the righteous and the wicked, For there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.”
For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.
