When most of us hear the word "testimony", our minds go to either of two places: Church or Court. As I was reading the Book of Judges this afternoon, this scripture jumped out at me, Judges 2:10. It reads, "After that whole generation had been gathered to their fathers, another generation grew up, who knew neither the Lord nor what He had done for Israel." The question that branched out of this trunk of scripture is, "How can we expect our younger generation to do or be any better than us, if we are not sharing our testimonies, often and regularly. This goes so far beyond the performances we see at church or in the courtrooms. It boils down to us being open and clear with our children with the "why's" of what we teach and what we say. There is a reason for everything under the sun, and what we've experienced of this life thus far is not something to bottle up and bury. As parents, WE are the primary teachers and instructors of our children.
Imagine an entire generation lost because we kept our mouths shut about what their hearts and minds needed most.......
That's all I got right now.
HAPPY SUNDAY!! I LOVE YOU ALL, EACH AND EVERY ONE!!
