Lack of respect toward those who are older



It is written: “You shall rise before the gray headed and honor the presence of an old man” (Leviticus 19:32 – NKJV). Therefore you younger people do not be lacking in respect toward those who are older. The apostle Peter tells the younger people to be submissive to those who are older (1 Peter 5:5).

Life is a wheel, those who are old today were once young, and those who now are young will be old. The younger people, therefore, ought to consider that as they will desire to be respected by the younger people when they are old, so now they must respect those who are older. And let them remember the words of the prophet: “As you have done, it shall be done to you” (Obadiah 15).
