Getting older- can it be done with grace
“It is not grey hair that makes one
respectable but character.” ~ Rana Junaid Mustafa Gohar

Time moves onwards. It is said
the young want to be old, and the old, young.
The young fear death, and the old that are
in pain see death as a welcome release.
We all pass through ages in our lives, even the greatest
of us. Take a look at the bible accounts of Moses.
a man of the tribe of Levi married a Levite woman, 2 and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son. When she saw that he
was a fine child, she hid him for three months.-Exodus 2
YOUNG MAN’S AGGRESSION
11 One day, after Moses had grown up, he went out to where his own people were and watched
them at their hard labor. He saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his own people. 12 Looking this way
and that and seeing no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.-Exodus 11
7 Moses was eighty years old and Aaron eighty-three when they spoke
to Pharaoh.-Exodus 7
Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it. Aaron and Hur held his hands up—one
on one side, one on the other—so that his hands remained steady till sunset.-Exodus 17
father-in-law, together with Moses’ sons and wife, came to him in the wilderness, where he was camped near the mountain
of God. 6 Jethro had sent word to him, “I, your father-in-law Jethro, am coming to you with your wife
and her two sons.”-Exodus 18
COMMUNITY RESPONSIBILITIES AND DISTRIBUTING THE LOAD
Moses’ father-in-law replied, “What
you are doing is not good. 18 You and these people who come to you will only wear yourselves out. The work
is too heavy for you; you cannot handle it alone.-Exodus 18
LAYING DOWN THE LAW
These are the laws you are to set before them
And Moses the
servant of the Lord died there in Moab, as the Lord had said. 6 He buried him[a] in Moab, in the valley opposite Beth Peor, but to this day no one knows where his grave is. 7 Moses
was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone.-Deut 34
had a complex life.
God does that to those he loves!
It is silly to think that God
gives everyone who accepts him an easy life!
We don’t start to do things God’s
way and the "suddenly" everything is simple and without strain.
Yet the strain we experience is different! We are led by God
and know that we are doing the right things.
A peace and comfort lives inside us!
We know God is with us!
makes it all worthwhile and gives us purpose. As Rick Warren points out we live a purpose filled life.
There is a hard way to get old,
and an easier way. The hard way is knowing that not much of what we did in our life counted. The easier way is knowing much
of what we did in our life did count.
To get older with style, all we need to do is trust God, and do as he leads us.
This is true whether we are 15 years old, 50 years old or 150 years old.
The wisdom of the old is less useful than many imagine. We
gain wisdom for a while, but then as our body and mind fails, we find that the respect towards us diminishes. Yet ,if we have
loved the love remains.
be lovers! That’s what God want’s us to be anyhow. It is the only thing that time cannot steal!
