Looking Ahead

What if?

When our son Monte was five, he asked his mom, “What if you and Daddy break your hip at the same time? Then we wouldn’t have any mommy and daddy to take care of us.”

“We’d find somebody to take care of you for awhile,” she said. “Besides, it’s usually old people who break their hip.”

He thought a moment, then said, “You’re getting old, aren’t you?”

What now?

How should a Christian feel about growing older?

“Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison . . .” (2 Corinthians 4:16-17).

Hope of glory.

Even with a broken hip.
