Retirement is for wimps

It would be odd to hear a Christian say that his duty to obey the commandments against idolatry, blasphemy, adultery, murder, and coveting expired when he turned 65. Yet some believers seem to announce just that regarding the Fourth Commandment, which prescribes, in part, “Six days you shall labor.” Of course, aging means task adjustments, but to think of stopping cold is impious. Honorable and fruitful second careers beckon as “retirees” continue to follow the Lord’s precepts. Their labor and fruitfulness are real, as is their need for a weekly day of rest.
