The older generation should never be made to feel that they have been thrown away and forgotten. Nursing homes are filled with former doctors, nurses, and engineers and on and on. Our tendency is to look at the elderly as just an old people group in a nursing home, instead of seeing them as people who have lived a life before us. They have made their mark on this life. They have performed well, and have confidence that their life was well spent. Leviticus 19:31 says, “You shall stand up before the gray head and honor the face of an old man.” Older people are to be respected. They have a wealth of practical wisdom to share and experiences to relate. They have earned our love and respect.
