Psalms Meditation – July 22

“Tell to the Coming Generation”

Read Psalm 78:1-8

Everyone who experiences God’s grace has an obligation to pass on what he knows. It is not necessary that each new Christian start from scratch learning the way of faith by trial and error. God’s people have a history, an accumulation of experience useful for instruction and inspiration. Only the man who ignores history is condemned to repeat it.

PRAYER: God, I thank you for the story of how you have loved and led your people, the ways you have disciplined and delivered, the ways you have rescued and reconciled. Give me a desire to pass the story on, sharing its truths with friends and family. Amen.

By Eugene Peterson, “A Year with the Psalms” p. 91
