One Generation to the Next

Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.  One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.  I will speak of the glorious honour of thy majesty, and of thy wondrous works.

Psalm 145:3-5

This is a recurring theme throughout the Bible – it is our responsibility to pass our knowledge and wisdom about the Bible and the God of the Bible to the next generation.  Here the Psalmist says that “one generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.”  It is important for each generation to let the next generation know about the victories that the Lord has wrought in their lives.

We are supposed to “praise thy works to another” and “declare thy mighty acts.”  If God has done a good work in us (which he has), we are to be letting the next generation know about that.  If we have witnessed any of His “mighty acts” (which we have), we are to be telling people about them.

The Bible tells us that to whom much is given, much shall be required.  If we know the Lord, we have been given much.  We are responsible to tell others about Him.  We have been given everything, and we need to make sure that the next generation knows about all that He has given us and done for us.

If we don’t tell the next generation about Him, who will?  They certainly aren’t going to hear it from the world.  They aren’t going to hear about the mighty acts of the Lord or His wonderful works on TV.  If they are going to hear it, they are going to hear it from us.  How are we doing at our responsibility to pass it on?
