Bible Verses About Growing Up, Gray Hair, Growing Old, Growing Older
God is willing and able to use us, no matter how young, and no matter how old we are. We should always remember that God wants us to care for, respect, honor, and value the elderly (including and especially our parents). Every one of us- old and young, adults and kids… we all have our their strengths, and we can all learn from and appreciate each other. We should show respect to and value everyone, regardless of age or status. We should make the most for God while we are young – not wait – We should start to obey and serve God as soon as we can. We should teach our children and young ones to do the same. (Verses Below)

Proverbs 6:20 -23
“My son, keep your father’s commands, and don’t forget your mother’s teaching.
Keep their words in mind forever as though you had them tied around your neck.
They will guide you when you walk. They will guard you when you sleep.
They will speak to you when you are awake.
These commands are like a lamp; this teaching is like a light.
And the correction that comes from them will help you have life.” (NCV)
Ephesians 6:1-3 “Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou may live long on the earth.” ~ KJV Ad.
“Don’t let the excitement of youth cause you to forget your Creator. Honor him in your youth before you grow old and say, ‘Life is not pleasant anymore.’ Remember him before the light of the sun, moon, and stars is dim to your old eyes, and rain clouds continually darken your sky. Remember him before your legs—the guards of your house—start to tremble; and before your shoulders—the strong men—stoop. Remember him before your teeth—your few remaining servants—stop grinding; and before your eyes—the women looking through the windows—see dimly.” (NLT)
Matthew 25:34-40 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
The King will reply, I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (NIV)
Hebrews 13:16 “And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.” (NLT)
