What are your feelings about old age? Everyone reading this either knows someone old (senior citizen) or is one. The Psalms speak in several places about the kind of life the aged live. Psalms 92:14 tells us that some will still be bearing fruit. Psalms also tells us some may feel weak and useless as they age. What is the difference? Verses 12 and 13 tell us one reason may be, if you have served the Lord and are continuing to sow seed, you have a purpose. As we age having a purpose becomes even more important. If you have stopped working in God’s kingdom, then it may be harder to feel a purpose. There is a difference in stopping and slowing down. The bible tells us Gods word is the seed. The bible doesn’t tell us, how to sow, when to sow or how much to sow. If you do anything to help God’s kingdom, you have a purpose.
This psalm challenges us to consider if we are preparing for old age by serving God today. What seeds are you sowing? What harvest are you planning for?
