Every day I will bless you and praise your name forever and ever. (Psalm 145:2 ESV)
One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts. (Psalm 145:4 ESV)
Recently I felt overwhelmed with the current problems of the world, especially in my country of birth and my country of residence. I am anxious for my family, my son especially, with the danger, temptations and sin that seem to be everywhere.
But then I get encouraged. In the midst of these problems, God is moving. In families, people are passing on their faith journeys from one generation to another. In my own family particularly, by God’s grace, we are blessed to be part of a generation of believers — and I intend to pass it on. In spiritual families as well, from generation to generation we see God’s faithfulness. There is hope. Greater things are yet to come.
The rest of the Psalm is a very good list of some of the qualities of God that can be taught to the next generation.
