“Gray hair is a crown of glory; it is gained by living a godly life.” (Proverbs 16:31 NLT)
Well… Maybe when the Psalms were written, grey hair would be a rare sign of old age. How does one reach old age? By living a Godly life, of course!
But these days there are more “old” people than ever before. Are they all living Godly lives? No! Certainly not!
If we are to take some meaning from this verse, we need another analogy. Grey hair does not equal Godliness.
How do you recognise people who follow the way of The Lord?
