Peace and Blessings!
I've posted this request on the Scripture forum but since it may also reasonably be considered a social justice topic (in terms of age discrimination), I'd like to post it here, too. I wonder if anyone can help me with some Scriptural passages that refute age as being an obstacle to doing God's work. There are several well-known passages that show that youth
is not an impediment (cf. 1 Sam 3:1-18, 1 Sam 16:1-13, Jer 1:4-10, Lk 1:26-38, etc.) but I need some passages that support the thesis that maturity or advanced age is also no impediment to doing God's work. I'd like a balanced approach to my arguments so I need to cover both ends of the spectrum, as it were.
Many thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
