Wisdom of Aged

Job 12:12-13. Is not wisdom found among the aged?   Does not long life bring understanding?  â€śWith God are wisdom and power; counsel and understanding are his. 

Some cultures really respect the wisdom that comes with age.  If we age correctly by gaining knowledge through our years of experience and have learned how to use that knowledge In a way that leads us to a walk of glory for God, we are truly blessed.  Many times we don’t understand things until after time has passed and we can look back on them.  When we don’t take the time to listen to those who have walked in the love and service of God we miss an opportunity to gain knowledge and wisdom for our own walk in life.  One reason I don’t respond to questions in the comments is I don’t presume to have knowledge, wisdom or answers for others.  I can only pray they seek God for themselves and, if needed, He will put them with someone who can help them hear God.  Our question is do we follow the knowledge and wisdom God has given us?  If not, why should He give us more until we use what He has already given?
