In our Sunday evening worship our minister, Anthony, has been doing a study of the Spirit and how he works in our lives. We have mostly been studying from the book of Colossians. For the past few days this verse has been coming to my heart. I believe it goes along well with the study I have engaged in on sanctification. I’m sure we will come across this portion of sanctification in a future study, but it has so been on my heart that I decided to share it here.

30 Days to Give Thanks: Day 21
Thankful for the Elderly
Today I am thankful for those who are older than me. I am thankful for the wisdom of their hearts. I am thankful for what they are able to teach me from their experience. I am thankful for those who have faithfully walked with the Lord for many decades of their life. I am thankful for their gentle spirits, tempered by time and trial.
Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
Father, I thank you for those who have strived for many years to walk in your ways. I am thankful for the example they set, and wisdom they share. I am thankful that you know all that we need and provide it. You are gracious to your church in allowing the Older to teach the younger. I need the wisdom of the elderly to teach me, protect me and help me to continue to be trained up in your word. Thank you Father for those who are older than I. In your precious son’s name.
