Psalm 92:12-15  The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.”

Advancing age is no impediment to a fresh and fruitful life. 

A group of us men of a certain age dined together last night. We discussed one of our peers who is a good twenty years older than the sixty-somethings hovering over our chips and salsa. He plans to work another five years before he retires. He’s the kind of guy who would go mountain climbing with Moses.

Two things are true: 

1) Today is a good day to grow in grace and truth, to know and experience God.

2) Whatever you consider OLD is also a good time to grow in grace and truth, to know and experience God.

Now is a good time for your faith to flourish. Now is a good time to bear fruit. 

For additional perspective on fruitfulness, turn to John 15 and ponder Jesus’ words. Fruitfulness is a joint operation involving both God and you. He does his part and you do yours. 

Spoiler alert: It’s all about love. (See verses 12, 13, and 17.)

Aging may inhibit certain physical capacities, but it in no way diminishes our ability to love with deepening meaning. 

I will live a flourishing faith now and always.

Our Father, I want to live a flourishing faith. I want to grow in your grace and truth. I want to know you better day by day. I want to bear fruit, fruit that will last now and always. Empower me to love who you love in the way they need to be loved by you. Amen.

Daily D – Jonah 4:1-3

Jonah 4:1-3 Jonah was greatly displeased and became furious. He prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, isn’t this what I said while I was still in my own country? That’s why I fled toward Tarshish in the first place. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger, abounding in faithful love, and one who relents from sending disaster. And now, Lord, take my life from me, for it is better for me to die than to live.”

Daily D – Psalm 128:1-4

Psalm 128:1-4

How happy is everyone who fears the LORD,
who walks in his ways!
You will surely eat
what your hands have worked for.
You will be happy,
and it will go well for you.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house,
your children, like young olive trees
around your table.
In this very way
the man who fears the LORD
will be blessed.
