Deuteronomy 34:7 Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were undimmed and his vigor unabated.
Romans 12:9 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
There comes a point in many a persons life when they seem to stop changing or attempting at life. It is in subtle ways to be sure. I went to see my parents over the holidays and noticed my dad was still wearing the same bathrobe he has had since 1985. As a good son I mocked him for it, but I was secretly thankful that he had not applied the same approach to his ear hair. Some men, for some reason, seem to reach a point where they no longer care if the hair on or in their ears and nose, well, matches a sheep caught in the unkempt brambles of a craggy forest. Somewhere along the way we stop listening to new music, we stop updating our clothes, and apparently we stop grooming. Sometimes that resignation pours over into other zeals in our life and we simply cease growing in the image of Christ. (I’m not saying ear hair trimming is next to holiness, but I’m not Not saying that either)
