SATURDAY, June 20

Psalm 90:1 Lord, you have been our refuge from one generation to another.

Our faith is handed down from one generation to the next. We have a lineage that goes all the way back to Jesus, who handed it on to the apostles and sent them out. You and I are a part of that line, and it is our responsibility to hand on our faith to those who will come after us.

I often hear parents say that they want their children to decide for themselves what to believe. The desire is good. They want their children to question, learn, and struggle with their faith so it will be stronger. But sometimes, what kids hear instead is that faith isn’t important enough for the adults in their lives to share or talk about with them.

We have not come to our faith carelessly. It has been cultivated and lovingly given into our hands. Pass it on with the same care.

MOVING FORWARD: Find time this week to tell someone why your faith is important to you.
