The House of Aaron

You know that verse, "Choose this day whom you will serve. As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord"? It is a good one. Have you every thought about your house in a real sense? I don't think I have in a long time and I definitely haven't ever thought of it in the generational sense. Today I did. I was reading in Psalms and came across these verses:

115:10 "O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD - he is their help and shield"
115:12 "The LORD remembers us and will bless us: He will bless the house of Israel, He will bless the house of Aaron, He will bless those who fear the LORD - small and great alike."
118:3 "Let the house of Aaron say, 'His love endures forever.' "

So, I know the context of this, that the house of Aaron is another way of saying God's people, specifically the priests in Israel, but when I read this it felt more personal.

"O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD"..."Let the house of Aaron say, 'His love endures forever.'" This is my hope for my children. That "my house", my children, my generational line will trust in the LORD.

This picture is of the children and grandchildren of Delane and Joanna Wilkinson. You could call it the "House of Delane."Help me LORD to put my trust in you, to say at all times that your love endures forever. Help me to be the example that will lead "the house of Aaron" to trust you, love you, obey you, seek after you.
