Each of us must decide if we are going to flourish or simply dry up, grow strong or perhaps become weak. Physically  we may have no real choice in the matter, however, we can be young in soul and spirit, regardless of our current age.

When we are firmly grounded and rooted in the Lord, we can become fruitful in things that will last well into eternity. You are never to retire from being fruitful. Rather, God desires for each of us to abide continually in an intimate connection with Him. By doing this, we can do the work He has given us to complete (John 15:4).
