Today’s reading: Psalms 76-80

“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” - Psalm 78:1-3.

Every one of us is to be involved in teaching the next generation, imparting to them the values, attitudes and behaviors consistent with the life of a believer. That teaching may be face-to-face classroom, but it can also occur through social media, broadcasting, or writing and publishing teaching material. With the fragmentation of the modern family, it is more important than ever that you find some role to play in imparting truth to the next generation, remembering the verse in Proverbs; “Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it” (22:6 NASB). Do you see that you have an obligation to teach and train? What are you doing? What more can you do? Can you support others who are teaching?
