Old Age. To be old and sick are the evil days. They are days without pleasure.
Ecclesiastes 12:1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;
We have done volunteer work in nursing homes for many years and I think it is a blessed ministry. It is a privilege to bring comfort and share the gospel with those who are at the end of their days here on earth, and I do not believe our labor is in vain. For some, it may be the first time that they’ve heard the gospel message. God has not forgotten them. Others, already believers, love having a service to attend right there on the premises. These believers, though elderly and ill, still shine. The joy on their faces is a testimony to God’s faithfulness.
The persistent unbeliever, at the end of his or her life, is truly a painful sight to behold. The evil days have come and they remain without hope. May the Lord have mercy upon their souls and “. . . give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth.” 2 Timothy 2:25
