|Only 2 generations represented here. Imagine what the|
picture would look like with 1000 generations...
Reaching forward, I might be fortunate enough to know my descendants to the 3rd and 4th generation. I might see some of the negative consequences passed down to them from my poor choices. I will certainly never see the full impact of my decisions to love and obey the Lord, for His mercies extend so much further than His discipline. His faithfulness is truly astounding, impacting us in ways we cannot comprehend. And so we trust in Him, knowing that His promises are irrevocable, placing ourselves and our descendants in His capable hands, for only He can see and understand the results of our choices throughout the generations.
