Respect/Honour to the elderly people

God is not ignorant of the happening of this present generation and how disrespectful they have become, I believe Death is not only for the old but I strongly believe that God is also not happy when we die untimely without achieving any useful things on earth. According to the bible one of the key to long life to the youth is respect/honour.

Leviticus 19:32"stand up in the presence of the elderly and show respect for the aged"

Ephesians 6:1-3/Exodus 20:2 " honour your father and mother so that your days will be long on earth"

Job 12:12 "wisdom is with the aged, and understanding in the length of days"

These generation care less of their parent or even the counsel of an elderly person, they disregard without remorse, its saddening to see young youths die everyday I am not saying it is the cause but in other ways it might be. Honour and respect your elders it won't take anything out of you. Some of the youth only respect their parent and disregard others , your respect should be generally because God sees them all as one.

If you can't respect someone who has attain a very good age how can u expect God to keep you alive to that age. Think about it. Let's continue to pray and believe God for long life even as we put his laws in place.
