Unfortunately, we look at older folks as being not as smart as we are. After all, they didn't have the internet or colored tv or "smart" phones. Pluto was a planet when they were kids. How silly is that. Unfortunately, we don't see the difference between "wisdom" and "smart". Wisdom is a commodity that most younger people don't have because wisdom comes with time and experience. Wisdom comes with failure and resilience. Wisdom comes with patience and humility.
Lord, help me to seek wisdom from those who have already made the mistakes that I am making but they have already learned from them.
