“To him which smote great kings: for his mercy endureth for ever: And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth for ever: Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy endureth for ever: And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy endureth for ever: And gave their land for an heritage: for his mercy endureth for ever: Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy endureth for ever” (Psalms 136:17-22).
Today’s Morsel: In the past year or so, I have taken an interest in going to estate and yard sales. It’s amazing what the Generation X and the Millennial folks get rid of, not knowing the value their heritage. I have seen some of the most precious things being sold because children do not know what their parents have left them. The psalmist told the children of Israel that God had given them the land of the kings of the Amorites and Bashan for an inheritance because His mercy endureth forever. But for some reason, they did not value it. Have you stopped to consider that old family Bible that your parents left? What about that old rocking chair that your mom rocked you and your siblings in? Or maybe that frying pan that she cooked that sugar cured ham or that baking pan she made those homemade biscuits in? Don’t be too quick to let go of your heritage, there’s a story of those things that may need to be told. And hold on to the godly heritage that is being handed down from generation to generation. The value for this heritage may begin with you.
Sing: God is so good, God is so good! God is so good; He’s so good to me.
Thought For Today: Hold on to that inheritance (Parker).
