If you think that being old is about having a rocking chair and an easy life style, think again. You’re looking through the binoculars backwards. What’s Age Got To Do With It? turns the lenses the right way around and gives a clear, Scriptural view of God’s purpose for old age. When He created the universe, God set in motion times and seasons and the ageing process. Old age was part of His plan from the beginning – that people should ripen to maturity, developing wisdom through a lifetime of experience and relationship with Him, eventually enriching others with attributes that have been honed over lifetimes. But instead of contributing as God intended, many see themselves as “useless” and are afraid of being a burden. Ageism has destroyed their self-image and expectations, and they give up and become passive – and we are all the losers. Here are stories of many people living full, purpose-driven lives well into their 90s and even 100s. For example, you’ll meet the lay preacher who wrote a book at 100 years of age because he couldn’t stand long enough to preach, and the 95-year-old who organized more Christian support from local churches for his care home, as well as many ordinary people who are making a difference to the lives of those around them. What’s Age Got To Do With It? shows how to take off the reins and live the way God intended from the beginning.
