What Bible says about Age

God wants us to grow old wisely “Wisdom is with aged men, with long life is understanding” Job 12:12

God wants us to grow old righteously. The Proverb writer tells us, “The silver-haired head is a crown of glory, If it is found in the way of righteousness” (Proverbs 16:31– NKJV). May God bless the older man or woman who, day by day, grows more closely into the likeness of Christ. 2 Corinthians 5:15

God wants us to grow old in serving Him – Luke tells us of the prophetess Anna who, at the age of 84 “….did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day” Luke 2:37

God wants us to grow old trusting Him – God promised to His people, “Even to your old age I shall be the same, And even to your graying years I shall bear you! I have done it, and I shall carry you; And I shall bear you and I shall deliver you” Isaiah 46:4

In conclusion, there is no doubt that we will grow old if we continue living upon this earth.   Ecclesiastes 12:1-6 says, 1 Remember also thy Creator in the days of thy youth, before the evil days come, and the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; 2 before the sun, and the light, and the moon, and the stars, are darkened, and the clouds return after the rain; 3 in the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows shall be darkened, 4 and the doors shall be shut in the street; when the sound of the grinding is low, and one shall rise up at the voice of a bird, and all the daughters of music shall be brought low; 5 yea, they shall be afraid of [that which is] high, and terrors [shall be] in the way; and the almond-tree shall blossom, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail; because man goeth to his everlasting home, and the mourners go about the streets: 6 before the silver cord is loosed, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher is broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern...

“How” we grow old is far more important than how “old” we grow.5
