Speaking Up for the Next Generation

Why do we speak up for the next generation? Because the word of God compels us.

"Our children and their children will get in on this As the word is passed along from parent to child. Babies not yet conceived will hear the good news-- that God does what he says." Psalm 22:30-31, The Message Bible

"Rescue the perishing; don't hesitate to step in and help. If you say, "Hey, that's none of my business," will that get you off the hook? Someone is watching you closely, you know-- Someone not impressed with weak excuses." Proverbs 24:11-12, The Message Bible

"Speak up for the people who have no voice, for the rights of all the down-and-outers. Speak out for justice! Stand up for the poor and destitute!" Proverbs 31:8-9, The Message Bible

"Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day. " Psalm 139:16, The Message Bible
