No it is not correct to say that- absolutely not- yet how many of us live it out-We live as though they are of no significance, an inconvenience. There are some tragic cases of illness for some elderly people and the care giving some family have to give as best as possible. These thoughts are not written for such who genuinely seek to care for loved ones as best as they can, as long as they can. I know of one such man who cared for his dear mom who recently died when she was in her early Nineties. He gave the best part of twenty years taking care of her until her last few months. My admiration for him is huge. I am told he “gave up his career” to take care of her. Is that possible for everyone- no…. He was a single man… but he found a way- for he valued a life…of an elderly person. To him his value on his mom’s life took precedent over his “career.” We often champion the athlete, wealthy, the educated, successful… this man unknown to many “championed” his mom’s cause. We are so , so misguided in many of the things we seek or deem as “Success.” Our values of possessions and praise-often takes precedence over what God values – PEOPLE!
