The Endless Need for Teaching

To read the Bible in a year, read Psalm 78.
Asaph, the writer of Psalm 78 (Psalm 78:0), commanded the people of Israel to hear his words as he opened his mouth in a parable, things he had heard from his father’s generation and he wanted to pass on to his children’s generation (Psalm 78:1-4).
God gave Israel a law, which He intended one generation to pass on to another generation,
For He established a testimony in Jacob,
And appointed a law in Israel,
Which He commanded our fathers,
That they should make them known to their children…
(Psalm 78:5)
That way the new generation would remember God’s works and commandments and set their hope on Him, unlike previous generations that rebelled against the Lord (Psalm 78:6-8).
A generation does not become faithful and knowledgeable by accident, but someone teaches them. As it was with Israel, so it is with the church, the lifeblood of the church is teaching. Whatever way you can let a younger generation know of the Lord and His ways, do it.
