The Need for the Next Generation (Judges 2:7-15)Bro. Mike Meade, March 4, 2018
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Have you ever stopped and thought about the world that your children and grandchildren are going to grow up in? It's a scary thought. The world is vastly different today than it was when you were a child, and it will be vastly different when your children and grandchildren become adults. Kids today are looking for recognition, attention, and confirmation.
The book of Judges outlines what happens when we raise a generation that forgets the Lord. They become a generation who are greatly distressed, serving false gods, gladly living in the evils of the world.
So what is The Need for The Next Generation? The bottom line is that they need the Lord!

7And the people served the LORD all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that outlived Joshua, who had seen all the great works of the LORD, that he did for Israel. 8And Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the LORD, died, being an hundred and ten years old. 9And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnath-heres, in the mount of Ephraim, on the north side of the hill Gaash. 10And also all that generation were gathered unto their fathers: and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done for Israel. 11And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD, and served Baalim: 12And they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them out of the land of Egypt, and followed other gods, of the gods of the people that were round about them, and bowed themselves unto them, and provoked the LORD to anger. 13And they forsook the LORD, and served Baal and Ashtaroth. 14And the anger of the LORD was hot against Israel, and he delivered them into the hands of spoilers that spoiled them, and he sold them into the hands of their enemies round about, so that they could not any longer stand before their enemies. 15Whithersoever they went out, the hand of the LORD was against them for evil, as the LORD had said, and as the LORD had sworn unto them: and they were greatly distressed.
