Richard C. Halverson once wrote,

“You’re going to meet an old man some day. He may be a seasoned, soft, gracious fellow, a gentleman that has grown old gracefully, surrounded by a host of friends. He may be a bitter, disillusioned, dried-up, cynical man, without a good word for anybody, soured, friendless and alone. The kind of old man you meet depends entirely on yourself. Because that old man will be you. He’ll be the composite of everything you do, say, think, today, tomorrow. His heart will be turning out what you’ve been putting in.”

The Bible says, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life” (Proverbs 4:23). Dear reader, unless you die today, you will be an older person tomorrow. When you meet that older person tomorrow, will you be proud to make his/her acquaintance? Think about it.
