I read an article the other day about ‘middle age’ and wondered when middle age actually was. For those who live to about 80, it will be around 30-50. For someone like Methuselah it would be about 500. With some refugee children middle age would be about 4 years old.
None of us know long we will live. Whether we are now young, middle aged or old we need to give every minute to God, whether we are alive or resting. He alone knows the number of our days.
The older need ways of keeping fit. As well as for physical fitness we need to keep spiritually fit by prayer, Bible reading and Christian fellowship.
