A violent person entices their neighbor
and leads them down a path that is not good.
Whoever winks with their eye is plotting perversity;
whoever purses their lips is bent on evil.
Gray hair is a crown of splendor;
it is attained in the way of righteousness.
Better a patient person than a warrior,
one with self-control than one who takes a city.
The lot is cast into the lap,
but its every decision is from the Lord. – Proverbs 16:29-33 (NIV)
Does the Bible speak out on retirement? Some pastor friends of mine have recently retired, but I don’t see them sitting around and just writing. They seem to be as active as ever. Maybe they have fewer headache calls and meetings but they are also doing activities they seem to enjoy more!
