Even When They Are Old
By Lyna Kittelmann Wilkins
"Good people....will take root like trees that stay healthy and faithful, even when they are old." Psalm 91:14
Some people dismiss older citizens as old and useless. They see the white hair, the hearing problems, and the physical disabilities as hindrances. They are!
However, like leaves on a maple tree, as they age seniors become more beautiful. They have experiences, wisdom, and inner strength to help others. God gives us all gifts to use to help others. We just need to let him lead us in what he wants us to do—no matter our age.
To God we are beautiful, created in his image!
Dear Lord, lead senior citizens, especially me, to further your kingdom and to bring Jesus’ love to others. Amen.
