The next generation

Filed under: Uncategorized — andykiff @ 10:31 pm

Judges 2:10 And all that generation also were gathered to their fathers. And there arose another generation after them who did not know the Lord or the work that he had done for Israel.

There was a fairly swift decline for Israel after Joshua’s death.  Somehow the people managed to forget who had brought them into the Promised Land and they turned away from You.  It seems that, no matter how good a job Joshua may have done as a leader, he didn’t make sure that Israel’s true history would be remembered.

It’s my responsibility to live Your way and to teach Your ways to others.  If I live a great life and do great things that disappear after a few years then I’ve not really done anything great.  I want to leave a legacy, to do what You want me to and to make sure that it doesn’t die with me.

Lord give me the vision to see beyond my own lifespan and the selflessness and patience to train others up to carry on Your work.
