The Role of Older Adults

Jul 9, 2023

If you ever get a chance to watch the NFL or NBA Draft, one of the best parts of the event is when they interview the players who have realized their lifelong dream of being drafted and they take time to thank and remember all those who had poured into them to help them reach their pinnacle. Sometimes, the player's parents and siblings will be right there, front and center. Other times, it's a coach, a teacher, a friend, or a mentor. We see similar remembrances and thankfulness when a politician scores a victory, or even when they lose. Even in the pagan world, it is understood that every person needs the mentorship of those who have gone before them and lived longer on this earth than them. Consider how much more important it is in the Church! This week at Friendship, we'll look at "The Role of Older Adults" in God's view of the family. If you have been blessed with a number of years on this earth, it is important that you look for those in your life into whom you can pour wisdom and experience. How can you help them follow God's word? In what ways can you use even your mistakes to teach them something and warn them of the consequences of sinful behavior? Where in their lives can you provide encouragement and motivation to walk in Godly ways? These things and more will be addressed, so join us to hear how God wants to use to to accomplish His will!
