Many make the comment that the majority of the people I spend time with are more experienced than I am, that is to say, they have years on me. I count this as a blessing. I find that the patience and experience of my mature brothers and sisters enriches me and makes me a better Christian. This however is the smaller gift. The real joy comes in giving what was received to others. The watering and nurturing of the next crop of Jesus’ bountiful harvest.
Job 12:12 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
12 “Wisdom is with aged men,
long life is understanding.
Abba, my loving and all powerful God, thank You for this day and for all my blessings. I pray over Your Word today, meditating in wait for Your wisdom and understanding. As I offer a prayer of thanksgiving right now for all the aged men in my life, I pray that You will use all the trials of my life along with all the victories You afforded me to pass down to the next generation what was passed to me. I pray for a hedge of protection to surround all my as we go forth in the name of Jesus, amen.
