Out with the old, in with the new… right?

Friday 21 January 2011

Out with the old and in with the new… that’s the way things work right? We live in a society that looks for the latest and greatest and the newest must-have pieces of clothing or technology. Value is placed on youth rather than the wisdom that comes with age and life experience.

Proverbs 20:29 (MSG) says, “Youth may be admired for vigor, but gray hair gives prestige to old age.”

There is something really special about growing up. With age comes lessons learnt, knowledge gained and mistakes made and mended. There is great treasure within the heart of those who have walked on this planet for longer than what you and I have.

So how do you see the older generations (including your parents!)? How do you speak to them? Listen to them? A Girl of Wisdom respects and places honour on the generations above her. She understands that they have a wealth of experience that she can glean from and input into her life.

Let’s be Girls of Wisdom who have friendships with older women and cherish the older generations!
