From Eugene H. Peterson’s Praying With the Psalms:
We will not hide them from their children; we will tell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done. Psalm 78:4
Those who experience God’s grace have an obligation to pass on what they know. It is not necessary that each new Christian start from scratch learning the way of faith by trial and error. God’s people have a history, an accumulation of experience useful for instruction and inspiration. Only the person who ignores history is condemned to repeat it.
PRAYER: God, I thank you for the story of how you have loved and led your people, the ways you have disciplined and delivered, the ways you have rescued and reconciled. Give me a desire to pass the story on, sharing its truths with friends and family. Amen
