Limits and Aging

Every phase of life has new limits to embrace. . . Whereas children age out of their limits; old people age into them. (Tim Sprankle, blogger)

The older you grow, the more you recognize your limitations. Memory begins to fade; energy is disappearing; hearing is more difficult, and much more. You can’t remember much about last week, but you can recall with some clarity events from your childhood. Sprankle writes, “One of the greatest ways to fight bitterness is to embrace limits.” 

Don’t long for “the good old days.” This is not wise. . . When people live to be very old, let them rejoice in every day of life. (Ecclesiastes 7:10; 11:8)
