Some time ago the United Technologies Corporation published a full page message in the Wall Street Journal entitled, “It’s What You Do, Not When You Do It.” The message contained a listing of many outstanding people who soared at various ages in their lives:
Ted Williams, at age 42, slammed a home run in his last official time at bat.
Mickey Mantle, age 20, hit 23 home runs his first full year in the major league.
Golda Meir was 71 when she became Prime Minister of Israel.
George Bernard Shaw was 94 when one of his plays was first produced.
Benjamin Franklin was a newspaper columnist at 16 and a framer of the Constitution when he was 81.
So many elderly Christians are ready to give up because they feel useless. Probably, an equal number of young Christians are ready to do the same. You are never too young or too old if you have talent. Remember that age has little to do with dreams, determination and vision! God has used the old as well as the young in His service.
