Faithfulness in the Afternoon of Life
What does it mean to grow old with grace and purpose? Let’s be honest, aging is hard. We are revisiting Sharon Betters conversation with Karen Hodge as she reminds us that as believers, we have the key to faithfulness in the afternoon of life. In God’s Word, we can find purpose and meaning as we grow older.
- As you grow older, what are some of the challenges you have faced?
- Respond to Sharon’s statement, “Grow up, not old.”
- What do you need to do today to help become that sweet old lady everyone wants to be around?
- What women in your life have modeled faithfulness in aging? What did you learn from them?
