Proverbs 16:31-32 “Gray hair is like a crown of glory; it is attained in the path of righteousness. Better to be slow to anger than to be a mighty warrior, and one who controls his temper is better than one who captures a city.”
Proverbs presents the most likely way to grow old: do what is right! When you do that you avoid trouble, you avoid stress, and your gray hair becomes a testimony to your righteousness.
The path of righteousness also avoids the angry spirit that seems so prevalent in this age. Anger can be the death of us, our relationships, and our witness. We need to keep ourselves in check if we truly want to be mighty in God’s kingdom!
