Lenten Meditation (Day 33)

A time frame of several generations [for a paradigm to finally take hold in a culture] used to bother me, but now I realize that each of us, like David, must simply serve God in our generation, and then die (Acts 13:36).  And then others will take up the baton (if we have passed the baton reasonably well), and on through successive generations.  We don’t need to name our times in order to use them in faithful service to God – although understanding them as well as we can makes sense to me.
