/ -- This upcoming July 8 (7-8) is Psalm 78 Day, a day set aside to focus on the privilege and responsibility to tell the next generation about God's glorious deeds.
The children's discipleship ministry of Truth78 established Psalm78 Day in 2020 to encourage Christians to consider and act on the words of Psalm 78.
"What a tremendous challenge Psalm 78 gives one generation to tell the 'glorious deeds of the LORD' to the next," says David Michael, Executive Director of Truth78, a ministry that inspires and equips the church and home to fulfill what David calls the Psalm 78 mandate.
Michael explains from Psalm 78 that parents were commanded to teach God's testimony to their children so that every generation might know it. "One generation faithfully teaches the next generation, which then teaches the next generation, which teaches the next generation, and continues this pattern until Jesus returns," he says. "This is the pattern God established for His people to make Himself, His Word, and the gospel known to all generations. Every follower of Christ has this calling on his life."
In a season marked by many holidays and designated observances, Michael says focusing on the discipleship of the next generation is critical. In addition to national holidays such as Independence Day, there are a variety of days designated by various groups "If we can observe National Postal Worker Day on July 1, National Fried Chicken Day on July 6, and National Father Daughter Take a Walk Day on July 7, how much more should we set aside a day to be reminded of our high and holy Psalm 78 calling to faithfully impart to the next generation the glorious truth about our glorious God."
