An Inheritance

Ps 78:4, 6:  "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… so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children" (NIV).

As adult Christians, it is likely you have faced many trials and  have relied upon God's presence and grace to get you through those times of trouble.  In fact, I bet most of you have faith stories of God's provision that still give you goose bumps when you tell them.

This passage encourages, even commands,  us to tell those stories to  our kids.  As a family, you are going to face enemies outside the home - angry people, pride, greed, and a culture that condones sin.  Remind your kids of God's power to overcome all these things by sharing examples of His faithfulness.  When we forget where our hope is based, we are more open to attack from outside.

Remember God and His provision for you, and tell your kids about it, so they can draw their strength from the same deep well.
