Characteristic of Longevity
I Samuel 12:2 – And now, behold, the king walketh before you: and I am old and gray headed; and, behold, my sons are with you: and I have walked before you from my childhood unto this day.
Verse Two – “and I am old and gray headed” – Samuel had a testimony of longevity. Many people are able to start out honest, but they are unable to maintain it for a significant length of time. Sustainability in spiritual matter is a reality only when we have lived in the presence of God and allow His presence to live in us. Samuel’s reign as prophet was approximately 50 years!
