Today is a reflection day.
Psalms 145-150 are all about praise. I have a coffee cup from a church which chose Psalm 145:4 as their motto, and it is a good one. These words appear on the cup:
One generation shall commend your works to another,and shall declare your mighty acts.
The way life with God is sustained on earth is the same way physical life continues – it must be passed from one generation into the next. We have a profound obligation to the young people of today to “commend” God to them by proclaiming His “works”, His Word, His love and His Gospel truth.
Our parenting, grand-parenting, and church programs for children and youth must all have this one goal in mind – that we leave a legacy of a strong and vibrant community of believers in the next generation – and that they might do the same until He returns. I invite you to join me in praying for us – that we might do this well.
in Him, Mike
