Recently I have been Working with some of our aging churches concerning their needs. Age has taken toll of their health and resources. They still have productive presence in their communities, but need assistance with ministry and sometimes resources to keep going.

It reminded me of Jesus talking to the religious leaders about not taking care of their aging parents…saying the resources were for use for God. Jesus rebuked them strongly.

I wonder what He would say to us today when we often turn a deaf ear to the cry for help from some of our aging parent churches. Perhaps we are thinking they are of no value today and our resources need to go where they can do the most good.

Just thinking. Doing some personal searching of my heart. Perhaps under some conviction. What do you think? I’d be interested in hearing from you on this one.
