You Must Tell Your Children

‘Tell it to the generation following.’ Psalm 48:13 KJV

Here is a sobering verse: ‘Another generation arose after them who did not know the Lord.’ (Judges 2:10 NKJV) How did it happen? Their parents failed to tell them. Read these three Scriptures carefully and prayerfully:

(1) ‘Tell it to the generation following. For this God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death.’ (Psalm 48:13–14 KJV)

(2) ‘We will not hide them from their children, telling to the generation to come the praises of the Lord.’ (Psalm 78:4 NKJV)

(3) ‘One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts.’ (Psalm 145:4 NKJV)

You say, ‘We need better government.’ Perhaps, but governments don’t raise children, parents do. You say, ‘We need better school systems.’ Maybe, but schools don’t raise children, parents do. As a parent, you’re called to govern your own home. As a parent, you’re called to educate your children in the ways of the Lord. You get the first bite of the apple! So give your children deep spiritual roots, starting as early as possible.

Will they rebel? Possibly; the Prodigal Son came from a good home and he rebelled. But he ‘came back’, because he had memories and values to return to. Approaching the end of his life, Joshua called the nation’s leaders together and said, ‘You yourselves have seen everything the Lord your God has done.’ (Joshua 23:3 NIV) Then he instructed them to tell their children. Did they do it? No. And what was the end result? Their sons and daughters ended up adopting a sinful lifestyle. Don’t let that happen to your children.

SoulFood: Rev 15–18, Matt 16:13–28, Ps 132:1–10, Pro 13:4–6

WORKING OUT AN ALTERNATIVE

In this uncommon race that we have enlisted in, if you rest prematurely, or take your eyes off the daystar we are following, you will be distracted. Another thing that can divert your attention is opening your mouth prematurely to reveal your secret to ‘sympathetic friends’. Never share a testimony until it is...More

THE BLESSING OF THANKSGIVING

Thanksgiving to God, especially for gifts and blessings received, is required and expected. God abhors ungrateful people. God expects Christians to give thanks in all circumstances they are confronted with. In 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Apostle Paul wrote:
