Numerous research studies have found that a person’s attitude about aging greatly influences how he or she ages. Those with a negative attitude about growing old tend to have a poor old age experience.
In Matthew 7:24-27, Jesus communicated that house builders picked one of two foundations: either sand or solid rock. Today, adults pick one of two approaches to aging: “incident aging” or “planned aging.”
“But at age fifty years they shall retire from service in the work and not work any more.”
Many Christians quote Numbers 8:25 and then say, “See, God says we are to retire at age fifty.” But full retirement age will soon be age 67 in America. Yet age 50 is a good time for us to start seriously evaluating and planning our retirement income from five sources.

The stereotype of millennials, those born between the early 1980s and 2000, is of young adults who dream big but yet seem reluctant to take risks and put in the hard work necessary to achieve their goals.
But as millennials gain influence in the workplace, churches and not-for-profit organizations need to reevaluate their stewardship outreach efforts to ensure their message connects with the unique perspectives of this next generation.

When my mother passed away last year, a few days shy of 96 years of age, her family wasn’t concerned with distributing her digital assets. She had none. That would not have been the case with any of her four children, and it would not be the case with most people in this digital age.
The English word gentle is the Greek word praotes in Ephesians 4:2. Paul used praotes to communicate that a Christian is a person who is mild in temperament or behavior, a person who is kind or tender to other people, a person who is never harsh or severe to another person.
