Old Men Crying

Why do old men cry? Google this one, and you’ll have reading for the day.

Some suggest that hormonal changes may make aging men more emotional, or that as we age, we care less about maintaining a stoic posture. I’m not so sure that’s the answer, but with age, it is certainly harder to hold back the tears. Does the Bible address this phenomenon of life here on the planet? Glad you asked.

Psalm 56:8 

You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?

Psalm 126:5 

Those who sow in tears shall reap with shouts of joy!

Give it some thought and go ahead and allow the tears to course down your cheeks.  God sees them, even stores them.
