In years past, and especially in other countries, the elderly were respected. These verses are an admonishment for us to return to that type of action.

Oh so true we learn whot is important in life the closer to your end How to manage with a lot less and life gives us trouble that he will not take away because that makes us stronger He places us in situations that we are to be in to help other I learned that God loves the poor sick and Homeless and the hungry They are very pressuse to him to He dose not look at how much money we got How much possessions we have or our power or position in life He looks at our love for him our works and our salvation trough him. Who we are in him.

What the Elderly Can Offer

Psalm 145:37 Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts. They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They will tell of the power of your awesome works, and I will proclaim your great deeds. They will celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

Additionaal Scripture Readings:

Job 12:12 Is not wisdom found among the aged? Does not long life bring understanding?

Psalm 92:1215 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the LORD, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, "The LORD is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him."

According to recent statistics, the averagee church has an experience bank of about 3,700 years in their senior citizens. What a reservoir! What a storehouse! How many years of wisdom do the experts of your own family possess?

Those experts preserve traditions passed down from one generation to another. They provide continuity and stability. They demonstrate a living faith that links the past, the present and the future. However it is passed down, the generations of your own family have much to offer you.

The greatest gift you may be able to offer the elderly is the opportunity to share their offering with you. Record on video or audio tape their memories of earlier times. Ask them for that family recipe and then write it down for those who follow. Pull out the family Bible or genealogy and transcribe the births, weddings and deaths of those they remember so that you will never forget. Seek the offerings of the elderly. You and your children will be the beneficiaries.
