I have been young, and now am old. (Psalms 37:25 NRSV)
Our text from the Psalms reminds us of how universal a phenomenon it is to age. "I have been young and now I am old." That is the cycle of life. Every wise person could recite this text, "I have been young and now I am old."
Some people live in a make believe world where no one ages, or where everyone ages but you. Do you remember the story of the two classmates who were returning for their fiftieth reunion of their alma mater? They hadn't seen each other since graduation, and one of them said to the other, "Well, John, you haven't changed a bit." John thought a moment and said, "Bill, you look exactly like you did fifty years ago." Finally, one of their wives chimed in with the truth. "It sounds to me that what has happened here is that both of your eye sights have gotten considerably worse."
As we grow older, may our wisdom and connection to God increase!
Dear God, fill me with wisdom and a closeness with you. Amen.
