After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel.
Do you give much thought into the next generation? I know I hear a lot of complaining about the generations behind us. And in this world where “any thing goes”, the younger generations are getting exposed to way more than let’s say “my” generation was. This world is confusing to me, so I can’t even imagine how confusing it is to those that don’t know Christ. Or maybe it’s not confusing at all. Maybe it’s just “normal”. But going back to giving it much thought, “Have we ever thought about it being our responsibility to teach/guide/prepare the upcoming generations?” Teaching them how to live in this confused world and stay strong in the Lord. Or even teach them who the Lord is and how He can work in their lives. Regardless our age, there is someone that is of a younger generation that needs us to take them by the hand and prepare them for the future.
If we want to change the future then we must invest in the generations to come. Share life with them. Share how the Lord has worked in our lives. Share His Love!
Lord, help me to make time for the future generations. Give me the wisdom needed to prepare them for a life with You. Amen!
