TOPIC: ENJOY YOUR OLD AGE
TEXT: Psalms 92:14 “They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing…..”
Age is just a date on a calendar; attitude is what counts. You can be old at twenty-nine and young at ninety-two. Here are three great attitudes to cultivate to empower you to live longer
1) You should be more tolerant. Having fallen into many of life’s potholes yourself, you’re quicker to extend a helping hand when others fall into them.
Having survived defeats and lived to fight another day, you’re qualified to offer strength and hope to those who struggle.
2) You should be more humble. A man who had just celebrated his fiftieth wedding anniversary said, ‘A man is always as young as he feels, but seldom as important.’ Realising that the world doesn’t stop at your command or cater to your whims, you become more realistic, and in the process you find peace.
3) You should value time. Beloved, ‘as soon as you feel too old to do a thing, do it.’ Start by asking yourself If not me, who? If not now, when?’
Here’s a promise from Scripture you can stand on: ‘They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing.’ Now get up off the couch and get going.
