Young Christians are like an orchard in May; every blossom is full of promise. The same people, after the sunshine and showers of forty or fifty years, become like an orchard in October, when the ripe apples are ready for the bin. In this fast age, there is a clamorous demand for young men, and sometimes a disposition to shelve those who are older; but there are some men who will not be shelved, or, if they have been, the public necessities take them down again, and demand their ripe judgment and experience. Wisdom from experience is indispensable. Practice over time brings experience. It is a necessity in our growth in Christ to recognize and utilize the wisdom of those who have traveled before us. In Words of Cheer for Christian Pilgrims Theodore Cuyler brings us his wisdom. Read, learn, grow, share.
