Have older people any value?
Does church value it’s elderly?
If you are the kind of person that likes “old stuff”, cars, watches, coins or old books, you know that our society, values “old stuff”. For exemple, on Ebay, an Oldsmobile 88, that was “born”/made in 1957, costs $95.000, in spite of the fact that is 61 year old car. Another good example is a Ford Roadster, made in 1932, for which you need to pay $40.000 if you want to have it as “a member” of your family. Another even better exemple is, a historic night at Christie’s in New York, Salvator Mundi, a depiction of Christ as ‘Saviour of the World’ by one of history’s greatest and most renowned artists, non other than Leonardo da Vinci, sold for $450,312,500 becoming the most expensive painting ever sold at auction. A painting that is 518 years old. The proverb: “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”, must be true for the same painting was consigned to a 1958 sale at Sotheby’s where it sold for £45. And the list with “valuable” “old stuff”, go on and on.
The elderly have so much to offer. They're our link with history..they have the experiences that youth lack!
