The older the better

The older the better 
by Joel Howard 

Cheese, wine
Age, time
The longer the investment 
The more that comes of it

Marriage, friends 
Joy, Strength 
The longer you’ve had it
The greater you love it

The Bible, the book
The LORD, Jesus 
The Ancient of Days
How tested His ways!

“Not my first rodeo!”
We only Him echo
Whose experience knocks all of ours
Out of the park

Still when God urges us 
Pleads with us 
Toward the ancient paths
We deny Him, defy Him 
And at Him laugh

Choose you this day whom you will serve 
As for me and my house..
The older the better!!

“This is what the LORD says: “Stop at the crossroads and look around. Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it. Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls. But you reply, ‘No, that’s not the road we want!’” Jer 6:16, NLT
