On 7/8, focus on Psalm 78 for the joy of the next generation

Tell the glorious deeds of the Lord to the next generation

What a tremendous challenge Psalm 78 gives one generation to tell the “glorious deeds of the LORD” to the next. God intends for His testimony to be taught to the next generations.

One generation faithfully teaches the next generation, which then teaches the next generation, which teaches the next generation, and continues this pattern until Jesus returns. This is the pattern God established for His people to make Himself, His Word, and the gospel known to all generations. Every follower of Christ has this calling.

As a way to incline this generation to meditate and act on these words for the good of the next generation, we encourage you to mark July 8 (7/8) as a day to focus on Psalm 78.
