I Chronicles 28:1-8 — As King David handed the crown over to his son Solomon, he reminded the people of the covenant God had made with them at Mt Sinai. They would enjoy a long and prosperous life in their Promised Land if they kept God’s Law.
David urged the congregation to obey for their own sake and for the sake of their children. Their children’s future was to impact upon the choices they made in the present, and so it is for God’s people in all ages. We must live today with tomorrow in view. What are we going to leave to those that follow us? Are we going to help them or hinder them?
