If we pay attention, the treasury of wisdom from our elders should astound us. (Tim Sprankle, graduate student)
Sprankle is a young adult who has learned something many young people today have ignored. While there really is “no new thing under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9), every generation seems to think they have to discover or invent new truths. Make friends with someone younger than you and take advantage of the opportunities for your wisdom to rub off on them.
The glory of the young is their strength; the gray hair of experience is the splendor of the old (Proverbs 20:29).
Wisdom belongs to the aged and understanding to the old (Job 12:12).
