The Journey with Ron Moore

Eternal Echoes | Psalm 89:1-4

Today's Passage: Psalm 89:1-4
Key Verses: Psalm 89:1-2

I will sing of the LORD's great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations. I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.

Ethan, the writer of today's psalm, was a Levite (1 Chronicles 15:17-18) and a wise person (1 Kings 4:31). He committed to never stop singing of God's great love and to proclaim God's faithfulness "through all generations." "I will declare," Ethan said, "that your love stands firm forever."

Realizing the brevity of life, how does a person vow to proclaim God's faithfulness "through all generations?" The answer is easy; the application is hard. We live our lives before our children and grandchildren in such a way that they see the true difference Jesus makes and desire to live godly lives before their children and grandchildren as well.

How you live is what you leave. The impact of one life makes a difference for generations. What we do today echoes into the future. The next generation will stand on our spiritual shoulders . . . or not. The question is this: When you pass away, what will you pass on?

Father, remind us often that our actions impact the future. Remind us that our singular lives are lived in the plural. Guard our thoughts, words, desires and actions. Help us to live today for future impact. In Jesus' name. Amen.
