Consider the Years


As we spend time studying God's Word, let us pay attention to the instruction of many generations.

Today’s Reading: Deuteronomy 32

Key Verse: Deuteronomy 32:7

Remember the days of old, Consider the years of many generations. Ask your father, and he will show you; Your elders, and they will tell you…

The song of Moses, poetry in the Hebrew language, is a spectacular way to present his last words. We have no idea of the tune he sang. It was no doubt in the minor key. It’s a sad sounding melody. Moses made a dramatic impact with his message and that's why it is impossible for Jewish people to forget him. Our key verse tells sons and daughters, as well as the following generations, to “ask your father.” How should a father answer? Deuteronomy 32:6 gives parents their instructions. “Set your hearts!” In Matthew 12:34b Jesus is quoted as saying, “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” Let us meditate on God’s Word. It will surely soak into the very core of our beings, and the right words will flow out when we speak.


Lord Jesus, I pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to move the content of this two-year daily journey into my heart. May my thoughts expressed here faithfully communicate Your thoughts. Amen!


One of my heroes is my uncle, Rev. Pritchard, 20 years older than his sister, my mother. My father was away during WW2 years, and my uncle filled in as a father sometimes. I can remember stern warnings, as well as good stories from him. His words still echo in my memory. He compiled a book called, Pebbles From The Brink — “the brink” being the shore of the river of death. The last words of dying people are often startling. Of course, he had the last words of Jesus which were, according to John who was there, “It is finished” (John 19:30). As a 12-year-old boy, I heard my dying mother’s last word. She labored to say my name, “David.” I went to her side, kissed her and said through my sobs, “Mother, I’ll meet you in Heaven.” My dad reminded me several times that I added the words, “I will, I will.” I know I can have this assurance because Jesus “finished” the work He came to earth to accomplish. His Cross is the bridge from this side of the river of death to the shores of Heaven.
