Rise in the presence of the aged, show respect for the elderly and revere your God. I am the Lord.

— Leviticus 19:32

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

In an age where respect is little known and even less practiced, showing honor for those who are older is often overlooked. Yet in this scripture, by the Lord‘s own word, showing respect for the elderly ranks right up there with reverencing God. But then we shouldn’t be surprised since God made honoring parents the very first commandment directed at our relationship with others (Exodus 20:12-17). (The first four commandments were directed at our relationship with him — Exodus 20:1-11). Let’s be distinctive in contrast to most of the world: let’s honor, respect, and care for those who are older among us!

My Prayer…

Holy and Eternal God, thank you for my parents in the flesh and in the faith. Please give those who have been my spiritual mentors a special blessing. Without their guidance, I’m not sure how I would have matured and become useful to your Kingdom. Please help me as I grow older. I want to mature in my faith and gain the character that will be needed by those you have placed before me to influence. May we, your people, both young and old alike, restore dignity and respect to our relationships before you in our generation. In Jesus’ name, I ask this. Amen.
