My people, hear my teaching; listen to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth with a parable; I will utter hidden things, things from of old—things we have heard and known, things our ancestors have told us. We will not hide them from their descendants; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done. He decreed statutes for Jacob and established the law in Israel, which he commanded our ancestors to teach their children, so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands. They would not be like their ancestors a stubborn and rebellious generation, whose hearts were not loyal to God, whose spirits were not faithful to him.(Psalm 78:1-8)
In order for us to “tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power; and the wonders he has done” we must know them ourselves. I cannot pass on what I have not received. As Godly Leaders, we have a responsibility to pass on what we have seen God do. Not only through the Words of Scripture, but where He has taken us and what He has done in us. Our impact on future generations is immeasurable… both for good and bad. Are we walking in faith and courage giving God a chance to show up in His power?
