Growing Old Gracefully - Life, Hope & Truth
With aging affecting our once youthful bodies and minds, how can we grow old gracefully? It is important to keep a positive, even humorous, perspective on aging, because God designed our bodies to age.
And God wants us to continue to bear fruit. One of the biggest benefits of living many years is one that so many in our culture today overlook or dismiss. With age comes wisdom and understanding to pass along to children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren—if only they will have the wisdom to stop and listen.
Also with those years of experience comes a new level of learning—or at least it should! Another old adage says that wisdom comes with age; but sometimes age comes all by itself.
But age does not necessarily eclipse our ability to continue learning! The Bible is an inexhaustible mine of wisdom, and the more we study and understand, the deeper our understanding can go. We can also add deeper knowledge and insights on marriage and family, interpersonal relationships, business, hobbies, planning and the importance of love.
Age should also bring a level of maturity and mellowing gained by experience. There can be a digestion of life and an acceptance of loss and grief. Some heal; some scar; but all carry lessons to be learned and passed along. The hard edges of a personality can soften; hot tempers can cool; rashness can become tempered with patience; and the foolishness of youth can be replaced by the wisdom of years.
Some realize they may have neglected their wife and family through the years, so they work now to repair and rebuild those precious relationships with love and graciousness. She may be able to focus anew on the positives of her husband. She may become comfortable enough with herself to no longer feel the need to fit in with every fashion.
