Tend To The Elders

1 Timothy 5:1-2

1 Rebuke not an elder, but intreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;
2 The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.

If you see an elderly person unable to work, do you ignore it and go on about your day? What if it is a member of your church? What if it is your grandparents? You should help them. As the young Christians, we are supposed to help the elderly. We are supposed to tend to them. It does not matter if it is carrying in their groceries, picking trash up out of their yard, or even going as far as mowing their yard. While helping them, we learn from them. Listen to their life lessons. Let them teach you the wisdom that the years have taught them. Most have read the bible more times than we can count and have prayed more than we have lived. It is time the younger help the older again. This also helps us talk to them about God. Let them know we still need them in the church. So get up young people and get back to work.
