In Joshua 4:20, an interesting directive is given by Joshua to the leader for each of the 12 tribes crossing the Jordan River into the Promised Land.

I encourage you to read that entire chapter by clicking here, but here is the point that I want to make.

We adults have a responsibility to teach our children about spiritual milestones.

For the Israelites, the lessons were to involve how and why and when and where God delivered the people through obstacles they could not have vanquished without His help.

If kids don’t learn from their parents or other faithful adults about God’s intercessory, delivering power, it’s liklely that most won’t hear it somewhere else.

That means that they’ll be lacking vitally needed information and inspiration for facing life’s challenges.

It is this very deficit that has our nation in a state of moral, ethical, financial and spiritual decline.

Please do your part to break the cycle.

Talk with a child about a time when God intervened in your life and delivered through obstacles that were greater than your ability to overcome.

Share with him or her about a “What do these stones mean?” moment in your life.

Perhaps it was a physical crisis.

Perhaps it was a financial crisis or a family relationship crisis or a physical danger crisis.

Somewhere in your life God has intervened and your life is better because of it.

Tell a child of how God helped you and the effect that has had on your life and faith.

If we don’t tell them, they AND we will be losers.

As always, I love you
