Psalm 145:3-4 ” Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom. One generation will commend Your works to another; they will tell of Your mighty acts.”

Passing on God’s Word to the next generation is far more important than we can conceive. At the end of the Book of Joshua all the elders of Israel and Joshua himself were dying. But unlike Moses who discipled Joshua, they had failed to mentor their successors…and as a result, the next generation succumbed to Canaanite idolatry. From this story we need to be mindful that as God’s people, we are only one generation away from renouncing God. This is why passing on and entrusting God’s Word to the succeeding generation is so vital. So how do we do this? Deuteronomy 11:19 shows us that sharing God’s Word needs to be deeply ingrained in our everyday activities and as natural as breathing. It tells us to teach His Word…explaining to them when we sit, when we walk together, when we lie down, and when we get back up. In other words, we need to be constantly commending God’s works and the Gospel Message to future generations.
