// Read Psalm 78:1-8 //
My people, hear my teaching;
listen to the words of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth with a parable;
I will utter hidden things, things from of old—
3 things we have heard and known,
things our ancestors have told us.
4 We will not hide them from their descendants;
we will tell the next generation
the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord,
his power, and the wonders he has done.
5 He decreed statutes for Jacob
and established the law in Israel,
which he commanded our ancestors
to teach their children,
6 so the next generation would know them,
even the children yet to be born,
and they in turn would tell their children.
7 Then they would put their trust in God
and would not forget his deeds
but would keep his commands.
8 They would not be like their ancestors—
a stubborn and rebellious generation,
whose hearts were not loyal to God,
whose spirits were not faithful to him.
We started discussing yesterday that the issue of next generation is an issue of what comes from old. It is what the fathers said and taught. Also there are things you must know of the Lord (Vs5) in order to build generations to come.
i. Deeds of the Lord Vs4
ii. Power and Word of the Lord Vs5
iii. Statutes and laws of the Lord Vs5
Living a life that commands result in the midst of men is important in building what is generational.
PRAYER: Lord, give me grace for generational impact.
