The simple term "generation gap" is a current description of an age old problem. Biblical families were involved in squabbles; and friction between older and younger generations frequently surfaced. King David's son Absalom arrogantly temporarily seized the power of his father's throne!
The Prodigal Son parable taught by Jesus is a perfect example of a rebellious child, refusing to honor his father. Yes, in some cases a gap widens to form a "canyon!" God recognized the problem of a widening gap and formed a plan to bridge it. "So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it but I found no one (Ezekiel 22:30 NKJ)." He still invites men and women to stand in that gap. Each generation is given fresh opportunities to pray for their land and its people. Gaps can be filled or minimized; will this generation take the challenge?
