King’s Kids International (KKI) has adopted a new purpose statement that I’m really encouraged about. It is “Generations living the kingdom together”. This is so richly seen in the bible and so there are many examples we looked at to learn about God’s heart and desire for generations gathering and living together.

Exodus 3:15: God also said to Moses, “Say this to the people of Israel, ‘The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you.’ This is my name forever, and thus I am to be remembered throughout all generations.

How does each subsequent generation know the Lord? From their father passing it on. And it isn’t just passed on by words, or going church on Sunday, or doing good things. But from living it with our children. Moment by moment and day by day.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9: You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

If we don’t take care of the transition from generation to generation then we have to start over because they aren’t able to build on our victories. We leave room for a curse. I just heard today from a friend that “our ceilings are our children’s floors”. What a great word picture! I love that my girls will build on what I’ve learned and I’ve built on what amazing victories and truths my parents have been blessed with from the Lord! Pass it on people!

    Popping in to say Hello!I found your blog through the Outdoor Hour, and had to learn more when I saw you live in Poland. My mom was born in Mokre in 1944. I visited there and Katowice and Krakow when I was 10 (I'm 43 now and live in the US.) we still have family in Poland, though I am not close to them. My mom lives in Berlin now, and is still in touch with those on Poland. How wonderful the work us you do through YWAM! I have good friend's in Cyprus with YWAM; the Lange family. He is German, she is American. Blessings to you in your Claremont for the Lord! Love the purpose statement!Oh, I meant to ask, will you be returning to Poland? It appears you haven't been for awhile (lightly skimmed your blog posts).Love,Jacqueline in CA, USA

    Oh my goodness! So many typos! My phone autocorrected, but sure made a mess of it. I hope you can guess what I meant. 😉
