What Do I Know?

Older and Wiser?

For weeks I've been trying to figure out what it means to become an old man. I'm kind of scared, I've never had to do this before. I mean, what if I don't do it right? Are they going to take away my AARP card?

I guess now that I'm an old man people will come to me seeking my wisdom; and I'll remember my father's advice to me when he was feeling the aches and pains of his later years: "Son, don't ever get old."

seeking my wisdom

I have learned quite a few things over the years. Some of it I can still remember, and some I wish I could forget. A lot of it was important once but isn't any more. But I would like to share a few of the things I've learned, for whatever benefit you can gain from them. I can't sit down and share them with each one of you individually in one afternoon so here are seven of the most important briefly:

Others

This is my favorite study tool because of its detailed footnotes, easy comparison with other translations, and links to the original language text and translation tools.

A novel reflecting MacDonald's advice for practical Christian living.

A light-hearted story about the gravity of family relationships.

A delightful fantasy with a section in the middle of the book that reminds me of those "every-day" days that fill our lives (that I've described elsewhere as "oatmeal days") featuring one of MacDonald's hallmark story elements: the shadow.

A young boy's adventures teach valuable lessons.

This trilogy of novels provides a much richer, more detailed examination of what it means to live a Christian life.
