After that generation died, another generation grew up who did not acknowledge the LORD or remember the mighty things He had done for Israel. (Judg 2:10)
God has blessed me with a godly heritage. i was raised by parents that loved the LORD and reflected Him not only in what they said, but also in the way they lived. i came to faith in Christ at the age of six in the basement of my paternal grandparents’ home. They hosted a Bible Club in their home for many years so that their grandchildren and other children in the neighborhood could hear the stories of the Bible and learn God’s Word. My paternal great grandfather was a homebuilder and developer in our family’s homestead city, and some of his most significant projects were the building of a large church in the center-city, a Bible conference center outside of town, a site for the annual Easter Sunrise service, etc. As a child growing up, i benefited in my spiritual nurture from the work he had done, even though he had gone to be with the LORD before i was born.
