Psalm 78:2-4 ” I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter hidden things, things from of old – what we have heard and known, what our fathers have told us. We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power, and the wonders He has done.”

Jewish fathers were instructed to teach their children… recounting the miracles and mighty deeds of God their Deliverer. This handed down oral history was necessary as we see in Deuteronomy Chapter 11 because the children had not seen or experienced the miracles of God. So the fathers were instructed to, “Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. (Deuteronomy 11:19) Sadly, every time a precious saint of the Lord dies, so does a bit of oral history, that can never to be retrieved. So I would encourage you today to share with the younger generation exactly what the Lord has done in your life…for Psalm 71:18 tells us, “Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare Your power to the next generation, Your might to all who are to come.”
