Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding?
At the most difficult time in the life of Job, who suffered more than most, he stated a TRUTH for the ages. He said, “Wisdom is most readily found among old people, and long living gives those who’ve lived long a clearer understanding of life.”
Only in the West is it true that AGE becomes a limiting factor in most categories of life. Third World countries throughout the world honor the “Aged” and give them the highest seat at the table. They are gently laid to rest by their loved ones at the end of their days. In the West, the “Aged” appear to be removed from society. Any suffering is tucked away out of sight. Here is the rub. According to Job and countless other Biblical texts, the “Aged” hold in their minds and life experiences the answers for “Youthful Failure” and “Shipwreck.” But while the “Aged” are staving off dementia and fighting disease which inevitably steals their WISDOM … their “LEGACY” has a tendency to put them in a guarded room with a TV and remote control. Here is the challenge to my AGING Sages. “Can YOU Get Younger?” Will you give it all you’ve got to lay the remote down and Get Up. Will you change your diet and change your clothes and fight to get in shape? Most of all, will YOU care about THEIR world?? “Can YOU Get Younger?” Because if YOU can, they’ll give you back your seat at the table!
Help ME get Younger! Amen
