[The righteous] will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him." - Psalm 92:12, 14-15 (NIV)
Standing in Sequoia National Forest, among some of the oldest trees in the world, always makes me look up. I am amazed to be in the presence of something that old that is still growing, still alive. I felt the same awe when I walked on the Mount of Olives...
I am never too old to proclaim God’s goodness and love.
