At 47, I am facing my mortality more and more each day. It is hard to feel good about becoming older and slowly losing all the physical abilities I once had. But gray hair is something that should not be disgraced. Proverbs 16:31 says, Gray hair is a crown of splendor; it is attained by a righteous life. The Hebrews believed gray hair was the reflection of a long life and a sign of God’s blessing from a righteous life. We should all respect the elderly who have lived a life walking with God. They are an example to all of us.
