Psalm 22:30 Posterity shall serve him; it shall be told of the Lord to the coming generation; 31 they shall come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet unborn, that he has done it.
詩篇 22:30 必有後裔事奉他，主所做的事必傳給後代。31 他們必來傳他的公義給尚未出生的子民，這是他的作為。
What our next generation knows is what they will serve. If all they know is the world, then they will serve the world. But if they know God and His righteousness, then they will serve God. So the battle lies with who is teaching our next generation and what is being taught to our children. For too long we have thought that we are doing our job: parents have thought that it is enough to have a family altar at home, the church has thought that it is enough to have a worship service, Sunday School classes, and good programs. We have underestimated the force of the world! The Bible actually warns us that “the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.” (1 John 5:19) We need to let our next generation know God everyday in every subject area so that they will know God, follow Him, and serve Him.
我們下一代所知道的將決定他們事奉誰。 如果他們所知道的就是世界，那麼他們將事奉世界。 但是，如果他們認識上帝和祂的公義，那麼他們將事奉上帝。 因此，這場爭戰是關乎誰在教我們的下一代以及我們的孩子被教的內容。 長期以來，我們一直認為自己已盡了本份：父母們認為在家中有家庭祭壇就足夠了，教堂認為有崇拜，主日學校和良好的節目就足夠了。 我們低估了世界的力量！ 聖經實際上警告我們：“全世界都伏在那邪惡者的權勢之下”。 （約翰一書5:19）我們需要讓我們的下一代在每天每個領域認識上帝，以跟隨上帝並事奉上帝。
