Remembering the Lord's Work

To read the Bible in a year, read Joshua 4-6.
After the children of Israel crossed over the Jordan River, Joshua commanded them to take twelve stones to set up as a memorial (Joshua 4:1-5), “that this may be a sign among you when your children ask in time to come, saying, ‘What do these stones mean to you?’ Then you shall answer them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the LORD; when it crossed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. And these stones shall be for a memorial to the children of Israel forever'” (vv. 6, 7). Their children, who had not experienced the parting of the Jordan River and the crossing of it, would need to know the history of Israel and how God was with the nation. Of course, this presupposed that the parents would know these things and be able to relate them to their children.
If your children or grandchildren ask you about matters pertaining to the church, can you answer them? The best thing to do to make sure you have the answers is to keep doing what you are doing, and that is reading the Scriptures daily.
