Wording of this Handout:
Have you ever been close to a very old person - say nearly a hundred years old? If you are till young, you might wonder how anyone could get to be so thin, and frail, and weak?
The thing to remember is that, given a few years, you too will be like that. It happens to everyone who lives long enough. Most people when they reach their nineties are as helpless as little children, and it is not their fault.
Many old people will tell you that, while their body is aging. Their mind is still much the same as it ever was. They are like children trapped inside old bodies.
The good news is, if you are a Christian, old age is just a temporary stage, followed by everlasting life at the resurrection!
Hi Grandad - can I carry your bag for you?
The Bible says "You shall rise before the grey-headed and honor the presence of an old man"
(Leviticus 19:32 New King James Version)
