Monday – Joshua 13;
Read Joshua 13. What in the world can we learn from this chapter?
Notice the diverse views on riches. What makes the difference in these diverse views?
In Joshua 11:16–12:1–23 we see a summary of the victories God gave Israel through Moses and Joshua. Now in Joshua 13:1–7 we see what’s left to do. How do these passages apply to Israel’s remaining work? And ours?
Joshua 13:8–13 lists the cities Moses gave to the tribes of Reuben, Gad and the half-tribe of Mannaseh. Yet, in the midst of the good news, there is a glimpse of trouble ahead. What is it? Application to us? To you?
Read Joshua 13:8–33. There is an awful lot of detail concerning the particulars of the inheritance of the tribes of Reuben, Gad and the half-tribe of Manasseh. In the midst of these passages is repeated encouragements for the Israelites: see if you can find them.
The Levites did not inherit any land because the Lord was their portion. How does that apply to us as the Church of Christ? Is the Lord our portion?
