|Getting older does not necessarily mean you are getting wiser.|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story Now that has me all confused. I am supposed to get wiser and yet my wife forbids me to get any smarter. What's a man to do? Where I am from, they have a saying, "We grow too soon old and too late smart." My fear is that I will arrive at my smart status the day after I die. Then what will I do? If only I could slow down the process of getting older and speed up the process of getting smarter, I could enjoy my wise station in. The problem is, I do not have to do anything to get old and the trouble associated with getting wise is astronomical. Talk about shooting for the moon? The Bible has much to say about getting old. In fact, the Bible is in favor of it. The Bible compares our life as a tree planted in a well watered place. "Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; To show that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him" (Psalms 92:13-15 KJV). I have come to one conclusion. It is not getting older that makes one wise but resting in the wisdom of God. Tweet
