Beloved, the physical strength may not be there for the old generation but their mind is full of resources that can help you on your quest. It may seem their time is truly over but their vast knowledge about life will always be relevant in our time and beyond.
Hope you remember that it took the old Moses and the young Joshua to win the war. The old Moses was on the mountain handling one part, the young Joshua was on the valley handling one part. The old Moses was at the backend but the young Joshua was at the frontend of action. Yet Joshua never says old man, please resign and give the leadership to me, you are too old to lead us.
The old Moses contribution will be seen as passive in this generation. Most of us will even say what is this man doing on the mountain when he supposes to come down and fight. We will criticize the spiritual strategy of winning war like we do today. Why will he just raise up his hands on that mountain when he supposes to be here?
