UNIT 2: BUILDING STRONG FAMILIES
VALUE SENIOR ADULTHOOD
The senior years of life can be full of love and hope, or they can be sad and unproductive. Much depends on the attitudes of both the aging individual and those who interact with them. God expects His family, the Church, to be the earthly family for each other. The senior adult who has no family nearby should be able to depend on their church to demonstrate Christ’s love to them. The benefit works both ways as those who minister to older adults are blessed by the wisdom and love those seniors share.
Our perception of life changes dramatically as we move through the stages of adulthood. Young adults may look at their parents and grandparents and feel that it will be a very long time before they themselves will be at that stage. But, what will seem like a short time later, they will wonder how they got there already. God has a wonderful plan for all of these generations to interact with one another in a way that glorifies Him and builds His kingdom. Each must value the other as a vital part of the family of God.
Central Truth: Older Christians should be valued in their role within family relationships.
Key Verse: 2 Timothy 4:7 — I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
