By John Piper
Retirement. They say it’s your reward for all those years of labor: “Trade in your time card! Sit back and enjoy! Golf-course comforts and beachfront leisure await!” But sexagernarian John Piper counters with a plea that hopes all fellow baby boomers will echo: “Lord, spare me this curse!” With millions of Christians formally retiring with a good twenty years ahead of them, what will it mean to live those final years for the glory of Christ? “How will we live them in such a way as to show,” asks Piper, “that Christ is our highest Treasure?”
Rather than buying into the dulling mind-set of the American dream, take up God’s dream for your golden years instead. Let Rethinking Retirement show you the way to growing old with godly zeal.
