One should hold those Christians with gray hair in much respect for they have paved the road before us!
Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the LORD. Leviticus 19:32
Sometimes, I sit back thinking about what our senior citizens have seen come to pass in their lifetime; Microwave ovens, Telephone Answering Machines, Super Glue, Liquid Paper, and Mr. Potato Head. Yes, Mr. Potato Head! Boy they have seen a lot come to pass. Now we have the internet, cell phones, and remotes for our ceiling fans! But boy there is are more reasons to honor them than that!
Our Christian Seniors have been in this spiritual fight longer than we and have stood by the stuff! They have sent out missionaries, built churches, and have seen lives changed for the glory of God more than once! They have stayed true to the Lord when churches split, pastors fell, and members fought! Our seniors have a lot to be honored for. Let us give them a little respect while we can. Move over and let them have a seat. Help them inside the church house. Give them hugs and honor them for their service! Why? Because the Lord said so…”…and honour the face of the old man.”
