Some people complain about growing older, but if you think about it there are some benefits of aging. For one thing, you are not as likely to be kidnapped. And if you do happen to find yourself in a hostage situation you are likely to be the first one released.
Another positive thing about being older is that people are more patient with you. No one expects you to run. Anywhere. Ever.
Oh, here’s a good one. No one views you as a hypochondriac no matter how much you complain about your many ailments. They think that at your age this is normal.
By the time you get to be a senior citizen, there are no more lessons to be learned the hard way. You’ve already done all that!
What else? Oh, you can eat supper at 4:00pm if you want.
And the things you buy won’t ever wear out. They will last you for the rest of your life!
So, there are some benefits of aging. But for those of you who do not yet consider yourself to be old, here is some good advice—“Remember your Creator in the days of your youth, before the days of trouble come…” (Ecclesiastes 12:1).
