Our Own Generation
“For David, after he had served the purpose of God in his own generation, fell asleep and was laid among his fathers and underwent decay…” (Acts 13:36)
No matter how great or how humble, we all may only serve our own generation and then be joined to the ranks of ancestry. Just like the earth revolves around the sun, there are seasons for each generation. As one generation is rising up, another is dying off, while a third is in their prime.
We don’t need to change things forever; just do what good we can while we are here and do our best to serve our generation while we can. It is a principle of nearness – don’t worry about what is far off; just do what is right in front of you.
It also is a good reminder that we each have a purpose in our own generation. We have work that He has prepared for us to do. You were not born in the wrong time – you were born in exactly the right time.
