Capture your Story

The sons of Issachar were Tola, Puah, Jashub, and Shimron—four in all. The sons of Tola were Uzzi, Rephaiah, Jeriel, Jahmai, Jibsam, and Shemuel, heads of their father’s house. The sons of Tola were mighty men of valor in their generations; their number in the days of David was twenty-two thousand six hundred. 1 Chronicles 7


Reading the lines above and about four or so chapters after, I was impressed by the amount of details in these books about each family. While sometimes you may wonder why God will give so much attention to details, these same detailed record became useful when the Israelites came back from captivity around the tail end of the 6th century BC.


A while back in a lively discussion with my late brother, I remember him saying, “someone should write the story of our family”, and by this he was referring more to the entire clan. The fact is every family has a remarkable history. Good ones and not so good ones, the combination of both make us who we are today.


A wise man once said there are three assets of value you must leave for the coming generation;


1. Your pictures; because a picture says a thousand words
2. Your library; this will give them the benefit of the books you read that made you who you were; they will have the same access to drink from the same fountain of wisdom as you.
3. Your journals; everyone can keep a journal today, it will give the future generation access to you mind and how it worked.


Recently I read in a book that we now generate in every 48hours, data equivalent to that produced from the beginning of writing till 2003; Talk about information overload. Every phone is a mini computer making everyone a potential, scribe, narrator, author and so on.
Capture your story, it will help someone in the future, our circumstance may vary in every generation but man hasn’t changed in the last 6 millennials.


Finally in the words of George Santayana, We must welcome the future, remembering that soon it will be the past; and we must respect the past, remembering that it was once all that was humanly possible.


As you dig around and capture your own story, I pray that God will guide you to details to lean from in Jesus’ name. There are priceless lessons in history, someday; people might even be willing to pay for yours.
