Grateful for the elderly!
Stand up in the presence of the elderly, and show respect for the aged. Fear your God. I am the Lord.
Leviticus 19:32 NLT
Each elder is a story; a living history written by the triumphs and failures, the joys and sorrows. But old age is not the end of the story, being old doesn’t mean that no longer exists nothing more to write; every day is a new experience and elders teach us the wisdom to live each day with simplicity, focusing on what is important and not in the banal. The elder has the ability to say much in few words, and even his reprimands are a source of wisdom. We must respect the gray hair, and humbly learn from wrinkles, so we can write our own history wisely. —Thank you Lord for the elderly!
