Never too Old

Galileo made some of his greatest scientific discoveries at the age of 73.

John Glenn returned to space at the age of 75.

Benjamin Franklin was a framer of the U.S. constitution at the age of 81.

Michelangelo was still producing masterpieces at the age of 89.

Dr. Jonathan Goforth, the great missionary to China, wrote to his children on his 75th birthday: “You must not wonder at me even at 75, eager to remain here in the high places of the Field, for the opportunities of service were never greater and the outlook for a great harvest never brighter than now.”

Polycarp, at age 86, refused to deny his Savior and when to the stake, saying, “Eighty and six years have I served Him and He has never failed me. Will I deny Him now?”

“When Joshua was old and well advanced in years, the Lord said to him, ‘You are very old, and there are still very large areas of land to be taken over’” (Joshua 13:1).

Caleb, at age 85, said, “Now give me this hill country that the LORD promised me that day. You yourself heard then that the Anakites were there and their cities were large and fortified, but, the LORD helping me, I will drive them out just as he said” (Joshua 14:12).
