Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

Mysterious Treasure

"...that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God's mystery, which is Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." (Colossians 2:2-3)
Essential reading:
"Finally, GOD is the goal of the Gospel. Heaven is not the ultimate goal. Sin forgiven is not the ultimate goal. Our happiness is not the ultimate goal of the Gospel. God is the goal: that His greatness and worth would be treasured most of all (Philippians 3:7-8, 1 Peter 2:9). The Gospel exists to bring us near to God so that we might trust, love, treasure, enjoy, and worship Him forever. And yes, that God-centered and God-exalting goal does result in our ultimate and everlasting joy! (Psalm 16:11)."From Helping Children to Understand the Gospel, by Sally Michael, Jill Nelson, and Bud Burk, page 31
