Wesley was born Sunday, June 6 at about 11:00 am to Mary Beth and Dale Potts. It amazes me how a little guy who basically eats, sleeps, and gets his diaper changed can steal your heart. Perhaps that is why they are called grandchildren — because it is grand to be with them. Leslie and I have enjoyed our first days with him. It is neat watching a daughter fill the role of young mother. It seems like only yesterday Leslie was the young mother and Mary Beth the baby. Time passes quickly and little girls grow up to be mothers.
Psalm 78:4 gives a great parental challenge:
We will not hide them from their children; we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done.
The truths of God found in the Bible are taught to us in Sunday School and worship. We should pass these along to the next generation with enthusiasm.
Are you a part of the next generation of leaders that God is raising up? At our church we have a long spiritual family line of those faithful in service and in lifestyle. These men and women of God were well aware of the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord. Several in our list of faithful are young adults. They are in the process of presenting to their families the truths of God.
We can’t do it alone. God’s plan for us must be accomplished. Let’s join hands and challenge not just the next generation but this generation as well.
