Devotional: Living Memorials
Christian Devotion about being productive in old age
"...[Growing in grace] they shall still bring forth fruit
in old age; they shall be full of sap [of spiritual
vitality] and [rich in the] verdure [of trust, love,
and contentment]. [They are living memorials] to show
that the Lord is upright and faithful to His promises;
He is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him..." - Psalm 92:14-15 (AMPC)
There is no age limit in the kingdom of God. Whether young
in years or older in years, we all have something to offer.
This is a beautiful description of growing old. Growing
in grace, full of sap (spiritual vitality), rich in trust,
love and contentment, living memorials of God's faithfulness.
We can still bring forth fruit in our old age. There is no
such thing as retirement in the kingdom of God. We can never
retire from being a Christian. Even though we may not be able
to do some things we did when we were younger, we can still
have a vital role in church life and bear much fruit. In
this way, we are living memorials. What an awesome label
that is to wear - a living memorial.
We're living memorials in our old age,
Still bearing fruit, though hair may be grey.
