Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations. Psalm 90:1
Our God is the God of Abraham and Sarah, and the descendants after them. Scripture makes it clear that God works in and through generations. The word is used 80 times in the NIV and 108 times in the NRSV. Clearly God cares not only about this present time, but also the generations that preceded us and will follow us.
Currently our society seems to lack the kind of affirmation that the Bible has for the many generations, although we talk about generations a lot.
