Living for a Vision that will Outlast You

Nov 26, 2023    Margaret Emmerson

After a lifetime of disappointment, Zechariah, Jesus' half-uncle, faces the choice of every aging person: whether to become a grumpy old man, stuck in his ways, unable to see any good in kids today. Can Zechariah embrace the new thing God is doing and receive the next generation as God's answer to his prayers?

Margaret challenges us to ask: is there anything you’ve started that you won’t live to finish? A society grows great when it’s old men that plant trees whose shade they will never enjoy.
