Day 91 Aging
Friday, December 23, 2016
Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you. - Exodus 20:12
Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained in the way of righteousness. - Proverbs 16:31
As we age physically, our spiritual growth should correspond. The seed of faith planted in our hearts is meant to germinate, bud, and bloom over the natural course of time. And gray hair is the evidence that God has been cultivating us both physically and spiritually - it is the crowning touch.
Father, as I age, teach me to wear spiritual maturity as a crown. Physically, help me learn to rejoice in what is remaining rather than lament what is lost.
