Age isn't valid

From the November 1996 issue of The Christian Science Journal


What age? Newborn baby? "Terrible twos?" Grade-school age? Teenage? College age? Career age? Parental age? Change-of-life age? Retirement age? Old age? Do any of these describe the man that reflects the one, everlasting, ageless God? No! As we begin to realize that the concept of age isn't valid, because man is the immortal likeness of God, not the offspring of mortals, we will cease to record age in our thoughts. The number of years one has been on earth isn't the problem.
