Today's reading: Psalm 78:1-72
The song of Psalm 78 is a historical one that provides an overview of God's provision for the Israelites from the time of Moses to David. Looking back and remembering how God has walked with us as our provider and protector is important because it helps us keep our focus on God and His greatness and goodness. And as we look back, we not only need to be reminding ourselves, but also passing on God's history and our personal history with God to those around us and especially to children and the next generation.
"[T]ell to the coming generation the glorious deeds of the LORD, and his might, and the wonders that he has done" (vs. 4).
Is looking back and remembering God's history, as well as your specific history with Him, something you do regularly? What impact does remembering God's history and your history with God have on you? Why is it so important to share this information with the next generation? Tami
