We’ve Only Just Begun

Someone once said, ‘The really frightening thing about middle age is the knowledge that you’ll grow out of it.’ But it’s also true that by the time we get to fifty we have learned life’s most important lessons. We have found out that only a few things are really important. We have learned to take life seriously, but not ourselves. Despite society’s preoccupation with youth, there is at least one thing that mature age gives us that youth never could, and that is the potential to be at peace with ourselves. What makes youth unhappy is its need to be like everybody else; whereas maturity allows us to be ourselves. The Bible says; ‘Grey hair is a glorious crown worn by those who have lived right.’ Don’t waste your days mourning the passing of youth. In God’s eternal scheme of things, we’ve only just begun.
