Transmitting Truth
thanks for joining us for today's encouragement from the Our Daily Bread devotional I'm here soon Holmberg and I titled our reading transmitting truth
 without the ability to see their grandchildren in person do to risk of infection many grandparents so at new ways of connecting during the covid-19 pandemic
 a recent survey showed that many grandparents adopted texting and social media as a means to maintain their precious bond with their grandchildren
 some even worshipped with their extended families by video call one of the most wonderful ways parents and grandparents can influence their children is bypassing down the Trees of scripture
 in Deuteronomy 4 Moses charge God's people to not forget the things they'd seen about God or let them fade from their hearts he went on to say that sharing these things with their children and their children's children would enable them to learn to Revere him and to live according to his truth in the land he was giving them their relationships God gives us with our families and friends are certainly meant to be enjoyed
 by God's design they're also intended to be a conduit to convey his wisdom from one generation to another training them and righteousness and equipping them for every good work
 when we share God's truth and work in our lives with the next-generation weather by text call video or in-person conversation we equip them to see and enjoy his work in their own lives
 today's our daily bread devotional scripture reading is from Deuteronomy Chapter 4 verses 9 through 14
 only be careful and watch yourselves closely so that you do not forget the things your eyes have seen or let them fade from your heart as long as you live
 teach them to your children and to their children after them
 remember the day you stood before the Lord your God at Horeb when he said to me assemble the people before me to hear my words so that they may learn to Revere me as long as they live in the land and they teach them to their children
 you came near and stood at the foot of the mountain while it blazed with fire to the very heavens with black clouds and deep Darkness
 then the Lord spoke to you out of the fire you heard the sound of words but saw no form there was only a voice
 he's a clear to you his Covenant The Ten Commandments which he commanded you to follow and then wrote them on two stone tablets
 and the Lord directed me at that time to teach you the decrees and laws you are to follow in the lands that you are crossing the Jordan to possess
 let's pray thank you God for the legacy of Faith you've passed on generation to generation Through the Bible and those who shared with us
 please help us to lovingly impart that Legacy to others
 thank you Lord It's in Jesus name we pray amen
