Last Monday I began a series of quoted ponderings and Bible verses about growing older. We had a thoughtful discussion in the comments section and I thank you for joining, whether you added a thought of your own or simply read the conversation and gleaned. (You may want to click ~here~ if you have not read last week's discussion.) Again this week I invite you to share your thoughts in the comments.
Today's thought is a quote within a quote . . . in which Elisabeth Elliot quotes George Macdonald . . .
"George Macdonald said, 'If you knew what God knows about death you would clap your listless hands,' but instead I find old people in North America just buying this whole youth obsession. I think growing older is a wonderful privilege. I want to learn to glorify God in every stage of my life." ~ Elisabeth Elliot
Do you see evidence of "youth obsession" in our culture?
Do you find yourself thinking more about death as you get older?
