American culture tends to have a retirement mentality. As if the goal is to reach retirement so we can sit back and enjoy life. The Bible never speaks to retirement in the sense our culture looks at it. In fact, we are encouraged to press on towards the goal, not sit back while others run to the finish.
Philippians 3:14, “I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”
The “older” generation is critical. If we sit back and enjoy the pleasures of this life for ourself, we are missing our call. I’ve been impacted tremendously from women who chose eternity over retirement. Today I share a story about one of these ladies. Join me at Lift Up Your Day to read today’s post.
