OLD AGE IS NO EXCUSE! 07/26/2011

The Bible promises, “They shall still bring forth fruit in old age” (Psalm 92:14). Old age is no excuse for doing nothing.

At 100, Grandma Moses was painting.

Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes was still serving on the Supreme Court at 91.

At 90, Pablo Picasso was producing his famous drawings.

At 89, Albert Schweitzer headed a hospital in Africa.

Michelangelo at 87 designed the basilica of St Peter's.

Gladstone at 85 was serving as prime minister of England.

Benjamin Franklin at 81 was busy drafting our Constitution.

Thomas Edison was 80 when he married a widow and discovered electricity.

Remember: “The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 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 shew that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him” (Psalm 92:12-15).
