Hello Friends,

I hope y’all are having a good week and that you are finishing strong with school.  Summer is approaching really quickly, so I want to make you aware of some upcoming important info…

Now for the thought for the week…

I started reading the book of Judges this week.  Judges is all about the unfaithfulness ofIsrael and the faithfulness of God.  In chapter 2 God is talking about why he didn’t drive out all of the Canaanites for the Israelites.  Look at what he says in Judges 2:21-22, “I will no longer drive out before them any of the nations that Joshua left when he died, in order to test Israel by them, whether they will take care to walk in the way of the Lord as their fathers did or not.”  The following verses say that the Israelites failed the test that God laid out before them.  The nation of Israel chose instead to worship the false gods of the Canaanites and allow their hearts to be carried away.  I think this happened partially because the older generation failed to pass on to the younger generation how to follow God!  It is so important that we as a generation pass on to the next generation the stories and works of our God.  If we don’t the next generation will fall away and not follow God.  God has always used people to pass on his story to the next generation.  Do you have a story to share with people younger than you about how God has worked in your life and in the history of the world?
