Praising the Lord Across the Generations.
Psa 145:3 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
Psa 145:4 One generation shall praise thy works to another, and shall declare thy mighty acts.
Grandparents and parents in a church virtually pop their buttons when they see their young ones on the stage singing or participating in the church plays. It fills their sails when their offspring praise the Lord.
Conversely, it is inspirational to hear grown kids extol the spirituality of their parents and grandparents. Perhaps you have heard, "I miss my mama's prayers." or "My grandparents were in church praising the Lord every time the doors were open."
Generational faith is not as common as it once was, but is a wonderful blessing when it is witnessed. Parents, be a solid example of faith for your children. Grandparents, while you still have the time and opportunity, nurture them in the things of the Lord.
