The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
A lifestyle of right living makes maturity a brilliant example to see.
Most people when they grow old they bend, slow down, and take on a darkness with their age. Have you seen the scarring of sin and the age spots of wickedness? It doesn’t have to be that way. We can live in such a way that as we mature we become a brighter example of godliness.
A professor in college stood out in the most remarkable way – she was the most beautiful older woman that I’ve ever seen. Her eyes were bright – her posture was elegant – the words that she spoke were not slurred but were clear and articulate. She knew the Word of God like the back of her hand. She had three earned doctorates – a brilliant professor. I marveled at her example of godliness.
One day she said, “I am working on my old age face – and I want it to be a happy face – bright and cheerful.”
Moses is a biblical example of this brilliance of right living – when he died at the full age of 120, his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone. (Read Deuteronomy 34:7)
As we mature, we can become a brighter example of right living.
