Generation to Generation
think about it.
What were Joshua's memorial stones meant to do for God's people? What stories or events in your family have become memorial stones to God's work? What did Job do for his family's present and future? How are you praying for and helping your family face the future?
Two very different passages today, Joshua 4:1-9 and Job 1:1-5, yet each one gives us good insight and perspective on generational relationships and some of the responsibilities that go along with families and parenting. In Joshua 4:1-9 we see the example of setting up memorial stones for future generations, and in Job 1:1-5 the example is praying for children.
Now you're probably already praying for your kids and families, and that's something we can do every day and often. But what about setting up memorial stones? I'm guessing we're probably not as proactive in this area. So what might some modern day memorial stones be? And how do we put them in place? Tami W.
