“Fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14-16) in God’s image (Genesis 1:29-27) – mankind, at any age, is respected and valued by his Creator. How we treat the older adult is a reflection of our spiritual life (Leviticus 19:32). Men and women in their old age should not be rejected but rather reconnected and cared for by the family and the church. Assistance should be provided to help the older adult find purpose and a way to serve God until the last breath. From the first breath all in the human race begin a journey that hopefully ends with an abundant entrance into eternal life: crossing a bridge from life’s experience to life eternal, having lived a life of eternal significance and purpose…leaving a legacy for the coming generations. (See Philippians 3:12-14, 2 Peter 1:5-15 and Psalm 71:18.)”
