A Heritage of Faith

For those of us who grew up with a rich heritage of faith, this verse is especially meaningful.  I ran across it this morning as I read through Psalm 71, and it reminded me of…
1) how blessed I am to have grown up in a Christian home with strong values consistent with God’s ideals
2) my responsibility to pass along these same values to my kids and the next generation

“Since my youth, O God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.  Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come.”

(Psalm 71:17-18, NIV)
