What the Bible Says About Caring for the Elderly

Our elderly deserve to be treated with love and respect, that is how I was brought up. Even thou times have changed and values apparently changed too, the Word of God remains the same. In it we can find  scriptures that express God's love for the elderly, encouraging the younger generations to give honor to whom honors is due, like it says on  Romans 13:7.  The following are some of the Scriptures I found and below the list is the web site I found them on. I hope what you are about to read warms your heart, gives you hope and motivate you to spread the love with our parents, grandparents, our heroes, those who worked hard and deserve to be honored. If you are one of them this is for you as a token of our appreciating for all of what you have done for our present generation. We honor you. 

Leviticus 19:32

“You shall stand up before the gray head and honor the face of an old man, and you shall fear your God: I am the Lord.

But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

But if a widow has children or grandchildren, let them first learn to show godliness to their own household and to make some return to their parents, for this is pleasing in the sight of God.

Do not rebuke an older man but encourage him as you would a father, younger men as brothers, older women as mothers, younger women as sisters, in all purity.
