The Second Half of Life

The second half of life begins after 40, and it can be (or should be) the best years of your life. Caleb conquered walled-cities and giants during the second half. At age 85, he was “as strong as he was at 40” (Joshua 14:6-15). Do you feel that the first half of your life has been more or less a failure? Do you regret the wasted opportunities, the misplaced priorities, and bad choices that have been very costly to you and your loved ones? Remember the Old Testament priest Eli. After failing woefully as a father and spiritual leader, he offered his most valuable contribution to his nation during the second half—when he mentored Samuel to become one of the greatest prophets in Israel’s history. It’s never too late! With God’s help, your greatest contributions will occur in the second half of your life.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
