Superstart: Generous with the Elderly
The Bible shows us that we can learn a lot about living life in God’s Kingdom from our grandparents. Elderly people have a lot of wisdom because through their many years of life they’ve experienced the work of God in so many amazing ways. Sure, sometimes it can be awkward to be around them — they might smell funny or talk weird or even do quirky things — but they need to see God’s love from us, too.

Choose someone elderly and plan a time to spend a few hours with them. They could be your grandparents or even someone who lives in a retirement home.
Go to the store and purchase a box of Popsicles and a jigsaw puzzle.
Take both the Popsicles and the jigsaw puzzle to the elderly person, give them the Popsicle and spend time with them putting the puzzle together.
Psalms 92:14 ” They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green.”
