Our culture seems to believe that if something is newer it must be better. In some parts of life that’s pretty reliable advice. A new banana is probably better than the one that’s been sitting on the counter for a week. In other areas, though, newer isn’t necessarily better. Wisdom is real, and it is earned over time and based on some time-tested truths. When we discover a new way to do things, we won’t really know that it’s better until time has passed and experience has tested it – at which point it isn’t a new way anymore, is it?
