My daily Bible readings are taking me through 1 and 2 Kings. In the Old Testament when someone got old, the Bible says they were old and slept with their fathers, of course, meaning they died.
I’m dealing with my mom these days as she just had a knee replacement. She’ll be 90 next month, but she is doing great!
I can’t help but think about these words though. It never says they had arthritis, were bedridden, or any other ailment except maybe dim eyes. I wonder how they dealt with all this before the technology we have today. Did they have anything for pain? Were they able to keep going and how?
We all have or will face old age whether it’s our parents or ourselves.
May God bless us as we struggle to make decisions, deal with pain, and find solutions to the problems that come with it all!
