Pass It On!

Psalm 78:1-8
“O my people, listen to my teaching.
Open your ears to what I am saying,
for I will speak to you in a parable.

I will teach you hidden lessons from our past
– stories we have heard & know,
stories our ancestors handed down to us.
We will not hide these truths from our children
but will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord.
We will tell of His power & the mighty miracles He did

For He has issued His decree to Jacob; He gave His Law to Israel.
He commanded our ancestors to teach them to their children,
so the next generation might know them
– even the children not yet born
– that they in turn might teach their children

So each generation can set its hope anew on God,
remembering His glorious miracles & obeying His commands.
Then they will not be like their ancestors
– stubborn, rebellious, & unfaithful,
refusing to give their hearts to God.”

I love this passage! Just finished listening to Nancy Leigh DeMoss of Revive Our Hearts use it on Counter-Cultural Women, part of her series on Proverbs 31. If you get a chance to read the transcript or listen to the broadcast, it would be worth your time. You can also subscribe to her free podcast – she just finished going through Proverbs 31 & you can find the whole 25 part series on her site – excellent stuff!!
