Winning a relay race depends on the speed of the runner but also on transferring the baton skillfully to the next runner.
When running in life’s race we also carry a baton which we are to pass on. This baton is the truth of God’s great love for the world which has been handed to us. Now it is our responsibility to pass this truth to the next generation.
We have been blessed because of the lives of our parents, Grandparents and Great-Grandparents. Many of them walked with the Lord. They were faithful to pass unto our generation the knowledge of God. Some of their prayers still follow us today.
If they could speak to us today they would say, “In the end, what you do with Jesus is all that matters. Experience a life with Him and pass it on so future generations also will be blessed”
Now we are carrying this good news baton. We are responsible to pass it to the younger generation in our families.
Don’t drop the baton!
“One generation will commend Your works to another; they will tell of Your mighty acts.”- PSALMS 45:4
