Respecting Our Elders

We started this week recognizing our awesome grandparents on National Grandparent's Day. As we celebrate these incredible influences on our lives, we are reminded why it is so great to have people older than us to look up to.

 "Get all the advice and instruction you can, so you will be wise the rest of your life." Proverbs 19:20 (NLT)

Scripture tells us that those who have gone before us have wisdom and understanding that will help guide us in our lives. Their stories of triumph and struggle can encourage our faith or save us from making similar mistakes.

Respecting our elders looks like showing them honor, spending time listening to their stories, and allowing them to teach and correct us when we need it.

How do you respect your elders? What have you learned from an older person that has been helpful?

Glide on!
