The living, the living, he shall praise you, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known your truth.
Revelations of God's faithfulness are precious. They are the ground of human hope. Every life has some peculiar revelation of God's truth in it. The parental relationship, with its tender solicitudes and loves, furnishes a means of transmission. This duty should be conscientiously performed —
I. THAT THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD MAY INCREASE FROM AGE TO AGE.
II. THAT THE GRATITUDE OF ONE GENERATION SHOULD GLORIFY GOD BY MINISTERING TO THE MORAL LIFE OF THE NEXT.
III. THAT THE GENERATION FOLLOWING MAY HAVE A SAVING KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND TRUST IN HIM.
(W. O. Lilley.)
