Do you respect older workers, or treat them like old fogies?

Scripture instructs, "You shall rise up before the gray-headed, and honor the aged" (Leviticus 19:32 NASB).

Young hot shots may think that they have all the answers and that older workers are irrelevant. However, the lessons learned over time can give invaluable experience to younger colleagues. I have not listened to experience and paid a big price, and I have avoided elephant traps when I have listened. Seek out experienced counsel and listen. Then you will profit from others' experience instead of paying the price again for yourself.
