“Aging takes its toll on all flesh”, is an accurate statement. It is as accurate when we make the same statement but replace “Aging” with “Time”. We do know that our bodily health, including brain health, can deteriorate as we grow older.
Aging and our non-physical side
We also know that our brain health affects the health and functioning of the non-bodily parts of our being. Our mental faculties and our body connect through our brain. Brain health, therefore, directly affects the health of our mind, intellect, wisdom faculty and capacity to grow spiritually.
These mental faculties mentioned above, and the human spirit (Job 32: 8) from which they result, cannot grow old. They are not “flesh” and are not subject to the ravages of age and “time”. I am joyful that there is a part of me that is not growing old and is unaffected by time.
