5He gave laws to the people of Israel
and commandments to the descendants of Jacob.
He instructed our ancestors
to teach his laws to their children,
6so that the next generation might learn them
and in turn should tell their children.
7In this way they also will put their trust in God
and not forget what he has done,
but always obey his commandments.
Question: Who is someone younger in your world that you influence? How can you more effectively communicate to them the faithfulness of God to his people?
Prayer: God of generations, I’m so grateful for your faithfulness to me. Without you working in my life, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Give me eyes to see opportunities to encourage the next generation, to remind them of your faithfulness. Let my ceiling be their floor. Amen.
