Acts 17:10,11 Thought/Prayer: Averaging Wisdom: 85 Years. Topics: 2 at end.
“And the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went into the synagogue of the Jews. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” KJV http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)
Paul and Silas had just been sent to Berea, and they go to the Jewish synagogue. And what a compliment the Bereans are given right here in the scriptures! We are told right here in black and white that they are, actually, more noble than the Christians in Thessalonica. What an uplifting scripture for the Bereans. (How sad for the Thessalonicans!)
The compliment for the Bereans has, as we can see, to do with their attitude and practices toward the Word of God. They were ready to receive it. They went to the scriptures daily to prove or disprove it. They were committed seekers; they were discerning students of the Word.
This morning in Bible study, we went on a Bible-verse journey. We started with a topic, looked up a scripture on the subject, and then went from scripture to scripture, discussing them as we went. I, as the guide, learned a lot from both the scriptures and the 5 persons there with me. In fact, I’m sure I learned more than anyone else. This might have to do with the fact that the average age of the attendees, not including myself, was probably about 84 or 85 years. There was a lot of wisdom sitting around that table. And I got to soak some of it up. I got to benefit from their discernments from life.
We know that age does not make any difference when it comes to experiences as believers. We are told that under Jesus’ future rule, “A little child shall lead them” (Is. 11:6). And there with me today were those at the opposite end of life, full of loving the Lord for decades and decades, full of wisdom in things of the scriptures.
Lord, help us to always see the worth of the elderly. Even someone in their mid-90s can bring wisdom to a discussion of Your Word. Even a child with purity of understanding will lead many of older ages. Help us to pray for every unborn child to be allowed to lead others on this Earth, lead them right to Jesus and to eventual eternal life that He gives to us all who believe.
Topics: Pray for wisdom to understand both the modern “ancient,” as we might term those in their 80’s and 90’s, and the little child with innocence and a natural love for God.
All churches to be pro-life in prayers and plans
