Our testimony to the next generation (Deuteronomy 6)

There is so much in this passage that is worth talking about.

God warned the people, “Don’t take me and what I’ve done for you for granted. Don’t forget, especially when things are good in your life.” (10-13)

And “Don’t take a rebellious attitude toward me, questioning my love and loyalty to you.” (16)

But the thing I want to focus on is verse 20-24.

When your children, the next generation asks you, “Why do you follow God? Why do you do what he says,” what will you say? What is your testimony of how God has worked in your life?

It’s good to think about these things. For one thing, it helps us keep a heart of thanksgiving. But for another, our kids, the next generation needs to know what God did for us. They need to know that God is not just someone who did things 2000 years ago. They need to know God is alive and active today.

Do you share with your children and others of the next generation what God has done in your life?

For that matter, do you share with your friends, coworkers, and relatives all he has done for you?

What is your testimony?
