Years ago I regularly visited a nursing home to encourage lonely residents. We’d chat and I’d ask if I could read an encouraging Psalm before leaving.
One morning, a nurse pointed to a man alone on the porch. “He’s 100 years old. He’d enjoy a visit.”
The centenarian was happy to visit with me. Afterward, I pulled out my Bible and asked if I could read a Psalm.
“No," he said, "It would be embarrassing if someone saw me listening to the Bible."
I was surprised that after 100 years of life, he was more worried about man's opinions than God's.
I sometimes have that problem myself.
But Jesus says, “Whoever is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them" (Luke 9:23-26).
If I’m on a nursing home porch 40 years from now, I pray the nurse will point at me and say, “She’s over 100 years old, and she loves to talk about Jesus.”
