  12. Responsibility TO Older People • Respect/Esteem/Honor • Proverbs 16:31; 23:22 • Provide for Them • 1 Timothy 5:4,8; Mark 7:9-13

  13. 1 Timothy 5:4,8 (4), But if any widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn to show piety at home and to repay their parents; for this is good and acceptable before God. (8), But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

  14. Mark 7:9-13 He said to them, “All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your tradition. 10 For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’ 11 But you say, ‘If a man says to his father or mother, “Whatever profit you might have received from me is Corban”-’ (that is, a gift to God), 12 then you no longer let him do anything for his father or his mother, 13 making the word of God of no effect through your tradition which you have handed down. And many such things you do.”

  19. Old Age is a Blessing The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree, He shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. 13 Those who are planted in the house of the LORD Shall flourish in the courts of our God. 14They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing. Psalm 92:12-14
