Generation NeXt

Sharing Christ with younger generations
Married, single, teenager or ninety-year-old, we all have spheres of influence. 

How will our words and actions touch the lives of the next generation….and through them, the next generation?

My friend Kim has never had children, but she's had a great influence on the next generation. As a youth worker, speaker, writer, friend and aunt, she's faithfully shared the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord.
“We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord…so the next generation would know them…and they in turn would tell their children.”     Psalm 78:4-6
Who has influenced you from an older generation? Why not contact them this week and thank them. And think of deliberate ways you can share God’s praiseworthy deeds with someone in a younger generation this week. It's an important way God uses our lives!

  1. I love the idea of contacting someone who had a positive influence in my life to say thanks. I have always encouraged my children to go back and visit their teachers whenever they have a chance. Perhaps I will make the effort this week to look up some old "influencers."

  2. I have a wonderful 93 year old aunt who still reads to 2nd graders and she is often stopped by past students who tell her what a difference she made in their lives and I know how much those thank yous mean to her!

  3. One of my teachers (40+ years ago!) is on facebook now. I need to jump over and send him a message. He fed my love of reading. I'll never forget the tears that dripped off his chin while reading Gentle Ben to us.

    1. Pamela,
      I love your idea...sounds like a special person and I'm sure he'll appreciate your thanks.
      God bless,
