Something everyone agrees on is the key in life is change. And it’s not optional. Think about the last 10 years—you’re not the same person, are you? In fact, your life today compared to then probably doesn’t even resemble each other. That’s because of change.
Sin's curse results in physical deterioration and eventually death (Genesis 3:16-19). Aging is the accumulation of undergoing physical, emotional, social, and psychological changes throughout life. These changes can bring about loneliness, lack of purpose, guilt, self-pity, loss of friends, and limiting health issues. They become more problematic as we age.
Retirement is a time to try something new, like mentoring. Investing time in a younger person can be a rewarding experience. No matter your age, taking every opportunity that comes your way and using it wisely is a great way to live.
Don’t wait until you reach some magical age to start enjoying life—start now! Don’t take a single day for granted.
Are you acting your age? Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean you can’t stay young. Adding enthusiasm will make a world of difference. None are so old as the one who has outlived enthusiasm.
Maturity is a choice. And it’s also a lifelong pursuit that brings you closer to being the person God meant you to be.
Having an enthusiastic and joyful attitude is a great way to live and stay young. So whether you’re 25 or 95 quit thinking about your age and start living life with enthusiasm.
Often those who are getting a little older think it is too late to do something significant. But that isn't true. It is never too late.
As we age we become more cautious and risk getting stuck in a rut. Becoming content with a tedious lifestyle of fear bordering on boredom isn’t living, it’s existing. Where in the Scriptures do you find “Don’t exert yourself?”
Although we’re living longer than ever before, one day our bodies will return to the earth and our spirits will return to God. Now is the time to remember Him in all our thoughts and deeds.
Instead of trying to stop aging, which is impossible, why not change the way you look at aging? Aging well has more to do with attitude than anything else.
