Day 146

Today’s Reading – Psalms 131, 138-139, and 143-145

Great is the LORD and most worthy of praise; His greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends Your works to another; they tell of Your mighty acts.
They speak of the glorious splendor of Your majesty —
and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
They tell of the power of Your awesome works —
and I will proclaim Your great deeds.
They celebrate Your abundant goodness
and joyfully sing of Your righteousness.

Psalm 145:3-7

It is one thing for each of us to to personally declare our adoration and praise for God and all that He has done in our lives, BUT (and this is a big but!)

We are not to keep this praise to ourselves!
We are to tell the next generation of all that God has done, so that they too might share in the celebration of all that God has done.

God’s good works are a bandwagon that we have permission to jump on!

It’s okay to celebrate all that God has done in your life and the life of others.

David celebrated the victories he had shared in, but he also celebrated the victories of the past generations.

If we stop telling the stories, I fear we are doomed to lose another generation. I don’t think it is too late, but time is running short.

Share your story.

Stop waiting for someone else to tell the story.

It’s your turn.

Tomorrow’s Readings – 1 Chronicles Chapters 26-29 and Psalm 127




I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
