Still Serving

OldManDrivingBarbara Klassen had a great-uncle who lived to be 106 years old. He maintained such good health in his later years that he was able to chauffer some of his less able-bodied senior friends around town.

On his 100th birthday, his driver’s license came up for renewal. When he went to the licensing bureau, the skeptical clerk said, “You’re 100 years old! What do you need a driver’s license for?”

Her uncle replied, “Somebody has to drive the old folks around!”

He continued to have a legal driver’s license for the next 5 years.

You have to admire energetic senior citizens who still have a desire to serve.

One of the feistiest seniors in the Bible was Caleb, who once said, “…So here I am today, eighty-five years old! I am still as strong today as the day Moses sent me out; I’m just as vigorous to go out to battle now as I was then.” (Joshua 14:10-11).

If you can’t stay strong, at last stay willing!
