"That the generation to come might know them,
The children would be born,
That they may arise and declare them to their children..."
To every generation.
Children. Cousins. Nieces. Nephews.
The love that powerfully weaves itself through our family interactions is not merely for personal security and benefit. For love, by its nature, is unselfish.
Each relationship granted in the precious family bond comes with opportunity and responsibility. It comes with the reality that we don't live in a vacuum. Rather, our life choices, commitments, and attitudes naturally impact and rub off on those closest to us.
It causes us to realize that life is not about 'me'. It is about letting Christ live through us with the purpose of blessing others. It comes with the sobering realization that precious little feet are pitter-patering in our path.
How worthy the investment! How great the opportunity!
May we grasp the potential in each moment. Investing God's Word and His genuine care into those closest and dearest in our lives.
That they may declare them to their children...the next generation.
"Telling to the generation to come the praises of the L,
And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done."
