Message of the Day: Growing Old Gracefully and Reverently, Pt. 1

“…that the older men be sober, reverent, temperate, sound in faith, in love, in patience…” (Titus 2:2, NKJV)

The best way to resist wrong teaching is to give positive instruction in Christian doctrine and its moral application. This will produce spiritual growth and right behavior in all groups alike, regardless of age or social background. Older men, for instance, should set an example of a well-balanced Christian life.

The word “older” men here should be taken in its literal sense. The word refers to advanced in years, and not to any office in the church: the whole context seems to require this sense. For an old man to be a drunkard, a light and trifling person, and a glutton, instead of being sober, reverent, and temperate, is not only blamable, but monstrous.

Being sober; reverent; temperate; and sound in faith, in love, and in patience the fruit of ripened experience and trials overcome. may we grow old gracefully and reverently!
