Then Joseph and all his brothers and all that generation died. (Exodus 1:6 HCSB)
After spending 5 hours in the ER today/tonight with my dad, I shared time with the family of broken arms, chest pains, and other ailments, the verse above came to mind. There comes a time when everything we have ever done is forgotten by the next generation. This is true for the secular world of "stars" and the exploits of Joseph, his father and his dad's father.
That whole generation was also gathered to their ancestors. After them another generation rose up who did not know the Lord or the works He had done for Israel. (Judges 2:10 HCSB)
Are we the generation like those of the past that doesn't know the Lord? So many morally void kids today will become tomorrow's godless parents.
