12 Is not wisdom found among the aged?
Does not long life bring understanding? (Job 12:12 NIV)
In a conversation with a friend recently we began talking about age and understanding. It is true that we gain experience with age and we gain an understanding of many things. Not all of it is good, but it is all good for a basis from which to make decisions and value judgements.
We, in America, do not put much value in age. Yet there is much to be learned from those of an age and much to consider from their wisdom. Because the old saying is much truer than we might imagine; The more things change the more they stay the same.
