Should I Throw Out The Old For The New?
This is a question not many ask therefore an answer would not be relevant. But and yes there is a proverbial but. An answer is what I will provide.My mother tried to tell me years ago that styles usually come back. They come back a little different but they come back. Or my dad would remind me "girl you all are not doing anything that we did not do, so hear this advise about......" It was usually about boys (the advise). My point is that no matter what life throws at you it has been thrown before. The bible is a composition of years of what's happened before. The bible tells you how man reacts to situations. The bible tells you how the earth was destroyed, who lived who died. No I would not throw out the old for the new. The old has meaning, longevity, wisdom. We can learn from the old.Job 12:12. Wisdom belongs to the aged, and understanding to the old.
