9. Butch wax

10. Telephone numbers with a word prefix (Olive-6933)

11. Peashooters

12. The Howdy Doody Show

13. 45 RPM records (and record players)

14. S&H Green Stamps

If you remembered 0-7, you’re still young (ish)

If you remembered 8-14, you’re getting older

If you remembered 15-20, don’t tell your age

If you remembered 21-25, you’re older than dirt!

I remember the first time I started feeling really old. My wife and I were playing a game with some college students and Johnny Carson’s name came up. One of the students asked, “Who’s that?” Suddenly, I realized that I was a member of “another generation”!

The things on the list above are things I don’t expect my children to be familiar with. They’re too young. They weren’t around back then. In fact, I wasn’t even around for some of those things!

There once was a conversation between Jesus and the Jewish leaders in John 8. Jesus made a reference to Abraham, and the Jews were amazed. They said, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have you seen Abraham?” (John 8:57). He was too young to know such things — over a thousand years too young.

But, though they could not understand it, Jesus had indeed seen Abraham. “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.” (John 8:58).

What the Jews failed to realize (and what we must acknowledge) is that Jesus was not just a man. He was God and had been in existence for all eternity. In fact, he is the only person who ever lived who you could honestly say was “older than dirt”! All praise be to the God who took on flesh and blood for our sakes!
