Wednesday, December 30th. Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill.

A man was watching his eighty-year-old neighbor planting a small peach tree. He inquired of him as follows: “You don’t expect to eat peaches from that tree, do you?” The old man rested on his spade. He said, “No, at my age I know I won’t. But all my life I’ve enjoyed peaches—never from a tree I planted myself. I’m just trying to pay the other fellows who planted the trees for me.”

Hopefully what we have done this year translates into something with lasting benefits for the ones who come behind us.

Plant seeds today for our grandchildren to enjoy tomorrow. The writer of Psalm 78:4-7 give us these words,
“We must not hide them from their children, but must tell a future generation the praises of the LORD, His might, and the wonderful works He has performed. He established a testimony in Jacob and set up a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers to teach to their children so that a future generation—children yet to be born—might know. They were to rise and tell their children so that they might put their confidence in God and not forget God’s works, but keep His commandments.”

"God, Give me wisdom to plan and plant for the future.

We are blessed and highly favored.
