What’s he deal with this generation gap?
Why, so often do we feel we have nothing to learn from those who are older or younger than ourselves. The old expression, “With age comes wisdom.” is so often true.
Sure it’s a different age now, the age of technology, the twenty-first century. But an ancient prophet one said, there is nothing new under the sun.
Personally, I have really learnt a lot from many people much older than myself. Perhaps not technological things, but practical and life things, relational things. And from kids there is much to learn and certainly much to be remembered, like getting excited about new experiences, tastes, smells etc. Being grateful and enthusiastic about every little thing.
So today I’m making up my mind to listen to everybody differently today. To appreciate all people, no matter what their age or peer group, and to remain teachable in all things, cos if you’re really paying attention, there is so much to learn.

What do you think?
