Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 78:1-8. Psalm 78 is a Psalm of Asaph. He cries out for the people to listen. He says he will speak in parables. He talks about teaching the children the ways of God and the mighty works of God. We’re to pass God’s ways and His Word from generation to generation.
Some of the ways you can help teach the younger generation about God is by teaching your own children or grandchildren, nieces or nephews, neighbors or friend’s kids about Him. We could also teach Sunday school and Vacation Bible School. In what ways do you help teach the younger generation about God?
One of the laws of God back in the Old Testament was that the people should teach their children about God. How are the children going to know if we don’t tell them? The purpose of each generation teaching the next generation about God is so they can have hope in Him, and know His Word and live according to it. Then, they won’t be like their forefathers who were stubborn and rebellious against God. Their hearts weren’t right with God and their spirits weren’t fully trusting in God. Do you feel like your heart right with God today? If not, why not take time to pray and ask God to forgive you of anything that is standing between you and Him.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [[Maschil of Asaph.]] Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:
3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
4 We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.
5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children:
6 That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:
7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:
8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.
Things to think about:
- What are some ways we can teach children about God?
- Why does Asaph tell us that we should teach the children about God?
- What does the Scripture say about the forefathers?
- How can we help our children to live Godly lives?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 78 which reminds us that we are to teach the children about You and Your wondrous works. Help us, LORD, to teach them and to set the example before them of living a life dedicated to You. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

About the book:
The Book of Psalms:Part 3 Chapters 61-90 by Deborah H. Bateman is 28th book in the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book contains approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 will not be included in The Book of Psalms since Deborah has already published a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet.
The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms: Part 3 Chapters 61-90 contains fifty Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or group studies.
