Living Water for Your Soul
You shall rise before the aged, and defer to the old; and you shall fear your God.
People often find it easy to dismiss the opinions of the elderly and avoid taking time to visit with them. But the fact that God commanded the Israelites to honor the elderly shows how seriously we should take the responsibility of respecting those older than we. Their wisdom gained from experience can keep us from many pitfalls.
Who are the older people in your life? Make time for them this week.
