For my 55th birthday, Victoria and I invited some friends out to dinner.
We asked them not to bring any gifts, but to bring their best advice.
Proverbs 12:26a says “The Godly give good advice to their friends..".
Here’s the good advice (paraphrased from memory) my friends gave me:
“Retire to something and not from something and stay involved”
“Learn something new every day”
“Laugh much and experience joy”
“Realize you are moving from an accumulation phase to a distribution phase and turn assets into income”
“Listen to counselors, and your spouse is your #1 counselor”
“Serve others, consider short-term missions”
Pretty good advice for anyone, eh?
What would be your advice for a soon to retire 55-year-old?
