Day 167, June 16 - Psalm 78

Click here for today's reading

5-8 He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments; and that they should not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation whose heart was not steadfast, whose spirit was not faithful to God.

A reminder the importance of sharing what God has done with our children and the next generation.

  1. Psalm 78
    4b We will tell the next generation about the Lord’s power and great deeds and the miraculous things he has done.

    52-57 But he led his own people out like sheep and guided them like a flock through the wilderness. He led them safely. They had no fear while the sea covered their enemies. He brought them into his holy land, to this mountain that his power had won. He forced nations out of their way and gave them the land of the nations as their inheritance. He settled the tribes of Israel in their own tents. They tested God Most High and rebelled against him. They did not obey his written instructions. They were disloyal and treacherous like their ancestors. They were like arrows shot from a defective bow.

    70-72 He chose his servant David. He took him from the sheep pens. He brought him from tending the ewes that had lambs so that David could be the shepherd of the people of Jacob, of Israel, the people who belonged to the Lord. With unselfish devotion David became their shepherd. With skill he guided them.
    A psalm by Asaph.
