Speaker: Lukus Counterman - As we face the prospect of aging, we need to ask ourselves, “What should we doing now to prepare for the golden years that lie ahead?” The fact is, we will be in old age what we are becoming right now. If we aren’t becoming people of faith now, we won’t be people of faith then. If we’re negative, grumpy, and complaining now, we won’t be positive, cheerful, and happy then. If we aren’t developing a walk with God now, we won’t have one in old age. Psalm 71 is the hymn of an old man. He has many trials and problems and yet he’s obviously joyful in the Lord. The psalmist teaches us that God’s way to grow old is to develop a walk with Him right now. May the Lord help us grow closer to him as we grow older in years.
