You’ve thought it before “… I’m too old for this”, or maybe you’ve  pondered “I’m too young …”.

But Connor Franta, Social Media Celebrity, will tell you different. Our age is a mindset and shouldn’t control us or our decisions according to Connor. He goes so far as saying we should do whatever we want regardless of our age.

Connor explains his position in this 4 min 37 sec video.

Here’s my take on Connor’s video. He had me in the first frame … mmmm … Chemex makes great coffee! After that he couldn’t do any wrong – well maybe …

Being too old [or too young] has always collided in my life. It’s mocked me and moved me, called me onwards and chided me. Connor argues your age shouldn’t decide what are you going to do, or not do. I agree – in some ways.

There are some things that just aren’t OK no matter what your age.  I’m not talking about doing drugs when you’re a minor … I’m talking about doing drugs when you’re an adult too!

How To Turn Age Into An Advantage

I was also rolling my eyes listening to Connor say “if you want to do it, just do it no matter what your age …”. No matter how much we like the ‘Theology Of Self Satisfaction’ it breaks lives. Moving to Las Vegas at 99 appeals to our “me-ness” [it’s not a word but you get it] but ignores reality. Time with our families and friends is short. At 99 you may be a mother. You may be a grandfather. Packing your suitcase and jaunting to Vegas is a self-obsessed act. It’s not age that should stop you moving to Vegas. Doing whatever we want, whenever we want, is a perpetuating lie. The people around you DO matter! They need to be a part of the decisions and choices we make in life.

But there is much I also agree with Connor on. Age IS nothing but a number. I don’t think he means 70 year olds should run 100m sprints or wear stilettos. We know God thinks age is just a number too. The Bible records God using people of all ages to do amazing things all the time. Not just the young. Not just the old. All people.

 I guess the key questions is this: have you listened to the lie that age disqaulifies you? Fear is a Liar. God is love. He believes in you. Get out there and do what God has made you to do REGARDLESS of barriers you face – barriers like age.

C’mon … let’s trust in God and not in our age!
