Church Challenge - Deeper Devotion
I love this passage, and I appreciate it more and more as I grow older! It is encouraging to realize that our spiritual development can go on as we age. Athletes peak in their twenties or thirties, scientists often do their most original work before 50, actors and actresses rarely play the lead roles beyond a certain point. But as we grow older, our faith can become stronger, our characters more beautiful, our devotion deeper. At a certain point, we won’t grow taller, faster, and stronger, and our memory may not work at lightening speed, but our love for God and others can increase every moment of our lives—right to the final day.
Thank God for an older person in your life who is a blessing to you.
Call or contact that person today to let them know.
