After that generation died, another generation grew up who did not acknowledge the Lord or remember the mighty things he had done for Israel. The Israelites did evil in the Lord’s sight and served the images of Baal. They abandoned the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They went after other gods, worshiping the gods of the people around them. And they angered the Lord.
Judges 2:10‭-‬12 NLT

Isn’t this interesting. We kind of see this today. Our parents and grandparents acknowledged God, faithfully went to church, and read the bible. Some of us followed their example, but some of us didn’t.

A lot of today’s generation is doing what the Israelites did. They don’t acknowledge God or they’re skeptical of His existence, they’ve abandoned the church, or they’ve gone after other gods they discovered through research on the internet.

They feel like they’re being individualistic by not following what was taught to them. They feel like they’re being wise because they’ve discovered something society has hidden from them when in actuality, they’re pushing away the only One that can save, help, and deliver.

The only one influencing a person to pursue other gods or no god at all is Satan. We did not come up with this ourselves. Don’t be deceived into pushing God away. Establish a personal relationship with Him through Jesus Christ.
