Dont take your strength for granted
Proverbs 20 verse 29 says that ‘The glory of young men is their strength: and the beauty of old men is the grey head’
The word glory means – that aspect in a person or God worthy of praise, honour or respect: often associated with brightness or splendour in *theophanies.
The bible is saying, that the aspect in a young man worthy of praise, honour or respect is his strength.
Sometimes it appears that we take our strength for granted, forgetting that it is our glory, only available for a season.
No one will stay young forever; we are only young for a season, and after this time our glory will shift from strength to grey hair.
Let us glorify God with what he has given us, ‘strength’ and serve Him.
