If we pay attention, the treasury of wisdom from our elders should astound us. (Tim Sprankle, pastor)

Doesn’t it seem like a great number of TV commercials are addressed to the young and virile (or the wannabes): e.g., exercise equipment to help you stay young and athletic. Even the ads for the elderly are often geared to help them think and act younger. As Sprankle suggests, those eager young adults might learn a lot more about life and living if they listened more to the gray heads.

The glory of the young is their strength; the gray hair of experience is the splendor of the old. (Proverbs 20:29)
