Memory Verse

“The glory of the young is their strength; the gray hair of experience is the splendor of the old”

Audio Icon   Proverbs 20:29



In this episode, Liz learns respect for older people. Are older people part of your family life? Some people have grandparents living nearby. Others "adopt" an older person to be their honorary grandparent. Spending time with older people can be a wonderful experience, especially when we listen to their stories. The Bible doesn’t look down on or ignore older people. It says that the experience of the old can encourage the young (Psalm 37:25). God's children don’t retire from this privilege and responsibility (Psalm 71:18, Psalm 92:4)!

Want to dig deeper and learn more about respecting older people? Check out Proverbs 16:31 and Proverbs 22:17.


What is your family doing to show honor and respect to older people in your neighborhood? Your church? Your extended family?

  1. Consider setting aside time this week to play a game, or listen to a story, or help out with some chores.
  2. Call, Skype, or send a card to an older person you know who lives farther away.
  3. Sitting together to listen to a CD of their favorite music, read a Bible passage, and pray can be a special blessing.
  4. Tell them what effect their lives have had on your faith.
