More Than A Number-Pt. 1; Talking Heart2Heart

Age Is More Than A Number

Age Is More Than A Number


I often wonder why the thought of being older seems to be a common thought for many starting from an early age? I guess it’s the bigger number that attracts the young mind. No matter what generation you are a member of, this is one thing that all have in common. Whatever the current age, it was never old enough to accomplish the task at hand. When you finally reach the next age, in just a few months the cycle began again. Once again the mind moves anxiously toward the next age, with very little time to appreciate the newly present age. It’s obvious that the young mind wants what it wants no matter what because of the lack of understanding and don’t really care attitude. 1 Corinthians 13:11 “ When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.” Even beyond the tender years I think it’s safe tosay, that very few recognize that age is more than a number. There are several lessons hidden deep within every age to prepare you for life in the real world.

You and Your Age...

You and Your Age are Stuck Together For a Year>>>TO MATURE…

As I look back at my childhood days I’m reminded of my own experiences, and how enticing the next age was to me. Every year I was wishing to be older and never grateful for the present age at the time. It was the glamour of the activity one seemed to enjoy, and it happened to be at an older age. We were affected by the influence of our environment and surroundings. 1 John 2:16 “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” While we were wishing to be older, the thought of responsibility or accountability never crossed our minds because of limited understanding. Many placed the emphasis on the number, as the lack of knowledge prevents one to understand that age is more than a number.

The present age was never quite old enough because in your mind being older wassomehow better. Perhaps, you thought if you were older then you would become a different person, but that was an illusion. Since you and your age are stuck together for a year, why not embrace it by absorbing all it has to offer. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” Gaining knowledge at every age is very important to your well-being and overall growth. This is the basis for age, and it’s why you need an entire year to soak up every ounce of knowledge possible. When you wish to be older, you miss out on moments at that age that can never be recovered. So age is more than a number because it’s a time for lessons and experiences to prepare you for the next age.  As you approach adulthood, the need for such lessons are key to this journey called life as you grow in grace.
