Each generation has an obligation to lay a good foundation for the next generation to succeed. David knew there was one big task that he would not be able to accomplish in his lifetime. He desired to build the Temple but God told David that his son, Solomon, would build the Temple.
David had a choice. He could have left Solomon to his own devices to build the Temple or he could do as much as he could to help position him for success. David leaves us a good example. He does as much as he could to gather all the resources and labor so that Solomon’s task would be a lot easier.
Because God has a long-range plan that will not all be completed on our watch, we should have a plan to position the next generation for success. How are you laying the groundwork for the next generation to pick up the baton and run their leg of the race? You owe it to your own legacy to help the next generation accomplish their purpose.
