“The Wisdom of the Aged” by Cynthia A. Lovely

IN MY WORDS – Cherish and treasure the wise mentors in your life.

My husband and I were part of a pastoral studies class last weekend with a special speaker; a Bishop of a large, Apostolic church in Long Island. He taught a two hour class on 5 major topics of “How to Stay in Revival till Jesus Comes.” This dear man just turned 85 and he stood for a good portion of the class.

When he did finally sit down to continue teaching, he did not lose one iota of anointing. Very few people can sit back in an easy chair and still present a powerful message that surpasses any young, energetic preacher running the aisles and shouting. There was such a wealth of wisdom in his words spoken to the class of earnest, young students. We were thankful and privileged to be a part of this session. And forever grateful for this Godly mentor in our lives.

If you are fortunate to have elderly men and women of God in your life, learn from them!

  • Glean from their years of experience.
  • Sit at their feet and listen to their lessons of life.
  • Spend time with them.
  • Do not write them off or think they are behind the times. 

They know what works and what has not changed through the years – the power of prayer, sacrifice and all-out commitment.

They are God’s jewels to be treasured.

Do you have someone like this in your life?

Have you told them lately how much they mean to you? 

“Wisdom is with aged men, with long life is understanding.” Job 12:2
