of wisdom and experience. This experience makes them venerable thus being able to give advice and offer counsel in matters of importance that may be difficult to solve. Gray hair is a sign of authority and respect. The Bible says that gray hair does not only come due to old age but also from righteousness. They have experienced life in all measures, and they are better positioned to know what is right and what is wrong (Boyd et al., 2014). They, therefore, pass this experience to the younger generation to guide them through life. This generation gap that exists between the young and the old acts as an opportunity for the adults to shape the next generation for Christ’s glory. This verse teaches us that both the young and the old have their excellence and both are useful, and therefore no one should despise the other. One is significant when there is a need for strength and agility while the other is necessary when the need for counsel arises. They should, therefore, work together as they need each other.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
