Think and Function Intergenerationally

When the children of Israel crossed the Jordan River, into the Promised Land everyone crossed together.  The youth or children, or 18 through 35 year olds (millennials) were not left behind because of generation gaps.  No one was left behind in the wilderness.

Everyone was also taught and they followed one authoritative standard which was God's Word.  "There was not a word of all that Moses had commanded which Joshua did not read before all the assembly of Israel with the women and the little ones and the strangers who were living among them" (Joshua 8:35).

Christian's, as we live and move about let us remember our children and youth.  Yes, we have to take extra time to relate to them, and they must take extra time to relate to us.  But we are responsible for connecting with them and bringing them along with us in every area of our lives.  They too are members of the body of Christ (Rom.12:4-5).  We need them, and they need us.

By the way, this involves more that our grandchildren and family members.  We need to look out for and be family to all of our children and youth.  We must encourage them and fight for their success according to God's Word, and they must do the same for us.

Christian's together we stand and divided we fall.

God Bless,

Pastor Brian E. Kennedy, Sr.
