A time of blossoming

Spiritual unfoldment isn't confined to our early years. We can always continue to progress spiritually.

Wouldn't we all like to retain the fresh vigor usually associated with youth, to be as active at eighty as at eighteen? The Bible gives a number of accounts of people who were able to overcome, to some degree, barriers attributed to aging. Moses, for example, was reported to be one hundred and twenty years old when he died; yet, the Bible tells us, "His eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated." Deut. 34:7. Sarah was long past the normal years for childbearing when she had a son. Abraham, her husband, lived to one hundred and seventy-five years.

Each of these people loved and worshiped God. Their goodness and purity were the direct result of their closeness to God, the source of all life.
