Last week I preached on Jeremiah 29:11 in honor of our graduating high school seniors. Whereas last week we honored our young people, this week we honor our elders. Here are a few of my favorite bible verses about honoring our elderly.
Wisdom is with the aged, long life brings understanding.
Rise in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God.
Let days speak, and many years teach wisdom.
Remember the days of old; consider the years of many generations; ask your father, and he will show you, your elders, and they will tell you.
The kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.
Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained in a righteous life.
