“This will be written for the generation to come, that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord” (Psalm 102:18).
“A posterity shall serve Him. It will be recounted of the Lord to the next generation; they will come and declare His righteousness to a people who will be born, that He has done this” (Psalm 22:31).
The piece of paper will outlive you.
Papers exist which Abraham Lincoln wrote on, even letters from George Washington. It’s amazing how long a simple piece of paper may hang around.
If you and I will take the trouble to handwrite a message and leave it in a somewhat permanent spot, it may be there to speak its truth long after we have arrived in Heaven.
Here are ten suggestions for seniors–or those in training to become such!–on what to write and where:
One. Write your testimony in your Bible.
That’s what those white pages in the front and back are for. And it’s why the Bible on your phone isn’t remotely in the same class as that thick, black-bound, leathery Bible you can write it and hold and touch and drop a tear or two on.
Two. Read through the entire Bible and mark it up good.
I suggest you then pass that Bible on to a child or grandchild. Then, buy another and spend a year reading it through and marking it up, and pass it to another.
