COLUMN: Fidelity

Richard C. Haverson once wrote,

"You're going to meet an old man some day.  He may
be a seasoned, soft, gracious fellow, a gentleman
that has grown old gracefully, surrounded by a
host of friends.  He may be a bitter,
disillusioned, dried-up, cynical man, without a
good word for anybody, soured, friendless and
alone.  The kind of old man you meet depends
entirely on yourself.  Because that old man will
be you.  He'll be the composite of everything you
do, say, think, today, tomorrow.  His heart will
be turning out what you've been putting in."

The Bible says, "Keep your heart with all
diligence, for out of it spring the issues of
life" (Proverbs 4:23).  Dear reader, unless you
die today, you will be an older person tomorrow.
When you meet that older person tomorrow, will you
be proud to make his/her acquaintance?  Think
about it.
