My favorite Psalm? Psalm 78. Why? Because God is telling us through the psalmist, the vital importance of teaching our children and grandchildren God’s word. The psalm emphasizes our responsibility to teach the next generation, so they might “set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments” (Psalm 78:7).
The Psalmist then recounts a brief history of Israel and their self-imposed estrangement from God because of their wicked and perverse ways (Psalm 78:12-72).
