Monday, July 27, 2015: Isaiah 50-52; Ps. 92; 2 Pet. 1

Listen to me, you that pursue righteousness,
    you that seek the Lord.
Look to the rock from which you were hewn,
    and to the quarry from which you were dug.
Look to Abraham your father
    and to Sarah who bore you;
for he was but one when I called him,
    but I blessed him and made him many.

Isaiah 51:1-2

I’ve been thinking lately about the ‘rock from which I was hewn.’  It is with deep gratitude that I think about the various ‘rocks’ that have formed and shaped my life – parents and grandparents; spiritual mentors; friends.  And those thoughts lead me to think about generations in the future – who might turn back and say ‘she helped shape me.’  It’s a huge responsibility and a great honor – to be influenced and to be an influence.

What season are you in right now – you (yes, you!) have so much to give – you have the opportunity to be the rock.  What are you doing to share your gifts, talents, life lessons, etc. with the next generation?
