So, in resonse to one of my posts, someone asked me to introduce myself. I am Bob, I am way old, though I don't feel as old as I am. I am very passionate that Believers should be in the Word of God daily. So, I write devotionals every day. I put them in bite sized form so that they are palletable to all. I have been writing for about a year now and I really enjoy it.

 

A little about me. I am 50 - yeah I told you. Dirt isn't much older than me. I am finishing a Master's Degree online through Liberty University. I work as a Sales and Use Tax Accountant for a company that sells software to banks. I have three kids that range from 28 years to 23 months. I live in Jacksonville Florida and I love sports.

 

Anything else you want to know, just ask. I am an open book.

 

Thanks, Bob

Welcome to Worthy. I'm 50 too but I would not describe myself as old (at least not here). We have much older people here on Worthy. In fact, 50 is pretty much an average age for Worthy, I think.

Welcome to Worthy. I'm 50 too but I would not describe myself as old (at least not here). We have much older people here on Worthy. In fact, 50 is pretty much an average age for Worthy, I think.

So, you mention that the average is 50. I publish a devotional on a page in FB daily.  I only have a little over 200 followers, but 54% of them are 35-55. It is interesting that the age of those interested in delving into the Word is 35 and up. It is concerning to me that a lack of Biblical knowledge and desire for Biblical knowledge seems to exist below that age.

 

Any thoughts?

By the way, I think I look old (or at least older) but I feel like I am 30. Athletically, my body won't do what it once did, but I feel young.

    I really enjoy discussing the Bible. There is so much to learn and so much to share.

    I am led to reach my hand out, in love, to those in need.
Welcome, it is nice to see young people still joining!

I just guessed that the average on Worthy was about 50 but I don't actually know.

 

I guess it's sad that fewer young people are interested in the word of the Lord but that's a sign of the times. More and more young people are being brought up in secular environments. Young people are too busy enjoyng themselves to take time to ponder God. Plus, they are living in a society that condones all sorts of sinful practises.
