The Old Warrior

One thing that the youth of generation has lost is a genuine respect for their elders. This unfortunate fact is even found in the church (Apostolic and otherwise). Part of the blame is the liberal agenda at public schools. Part of the blame can be found in global multi-media, where access to unwholesome and unnecessary information is easily accessible to children and minors. Parents are partially to blame for allowing disrespect. There are multiple reasons why. But the pitiful fact is that the youth don’t rise up before the hoary head anymore. They don’t honor the face of the old man. And, as a result, they have forgotten how to truly fear (revere, respect) Almighty God.

[message from the Internet]

Leviticus 19:32 ... Thou shalt rise up before the hoary head, and honour the face of the old man, and fear thy God: I am the LORD.

Exodus 20:12 ... Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

Proverbs 20:29 ... The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head.

Proverbs 1:7 ... The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. ❤
