I was talking with a young man a few days ago about getting older. I told him there were verses in the Bible that describes how our bodies would become as we got old, but I couldn’t remember where it was located. Well, this morning I found it while I was having my Quite Time!
Eccl. 12:3, In the day when the keepers of the house (this is your arms and hands) tremble, and the strong men (the feet and the knees become weak) bow themselves, and the grinders (you lose some of your teeth) cease because they are few, and those who look out of the windows (your eyes go bad] are darkened.
The only thing it didn’t mention is losing your hair, but only of few of us do that. LOL
I’m 61 and I think I’m a pretty healthy individual. I work out 5 to 6 days a week. I can still lift quite a bit of weight and I don’t have bad feet and knees. I have lost some teeth with the help of some dentist in the past and I do have to wear glasses.
I guess I’m trying to convince myself I’m not in that bad of shape for a guy my age, but, it’s coming my friends.
The upside is this if you’re a Christian. The older you get the closer you get to seeing Jesus and that’s a PLUS!
Hey, when you think of it that way, getting old isn’t so bad after all!
