10/6/19: Colossians 2:8-23; Psalm 78:1-31; Proverbs 24:26
We recently completed a study of “Genesis Genealogies” where we looked at the first 20 generations from Adam to Abraham. And one of the reasons we did so is explained very well in today’s reading from Psalms:
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.
