Hey Guys! It’s Holmes Confessions Monday
We decided to share one of my personal emails. I subscribe to Pastor Soaries DFREE emails regarding financial freedom and I thought this was an amazing one to share with our peeps. This one had Jim and I thinking, “Hmmm, can we really retire at the age of 50, and enjoy our retirement?”
I didn’t begin thinking seriously about retirement until I was into my forties. That makes me normal. Most of us are not doing much to prepare for retirement even if we have begun to think about it. So many people today have resigned themselves to the idea that they will work for the rest of their lives without ever enjoying a retirement. Consider God’s strategy for the Levites.
These men were given a very important role in the religious life of God’s people. On the very same day that God gave Moses instructions concerning their appointment and their assignment, God included in the instructions a mandatory retirement age. They were to serve from age 25 up to age 50 when they were required to retire. Having this information as part of their initial instruction made it impossible for them to postpone thinking about and planning for retirement.
