Are You Still Growing?  by Joe Barnett

Give me this mountain.  Joshua 14:12

John W. Gardner, Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare in President Lyndon Johnson’s administration, once said that by their mid-thirties most people have stopped acquiring new skills and new attitudes.

That should give us grayheads pause.  Are we still learning, still growing, still stepping up to new challenges?

Have a look at 85-year-old Caleb’s story in Joshua 14.  At a time when the pace and comfort of retirement had been hard-earned and well-deserved, Caleb knew that vegetating in a recliner wasn’t for him.  He requested Canaan’s most challenging post – the hill country, populated with fierce giants. “Give me this mountain,” he said.

On the last day of my life, I hope I learn something new, do something productive, and become a better man.

If you’re not still growing, you’re slowly dying.
