You As a 75-Year-Old

The Lord commanded Abram to leave his homeland and go to a new land. Abram obeyed the command, but notice his age when this happened, “So Abram departed as the LORD had spoken to him, and Lot went with him. And Abram was seventy-five years old when he departed from Haran” (Genesis 12:4).
True, people lived longer during those days. He did live to be 175, nevertheless, he did not sit around watching life go by. The Lord called Abram because he was a man of faith and a man of action. As we continue to read in Genesis, we will only see Abram growing older, but we will also see him actively engaged in the story.
Perhaps we could do better physically and spiritually by watching less television, and reading more and doing more.
