Monday – Joshua 7
Read through Joshua 7 – what are the lessons for us? For you?
See in these passages the reality of God’s wrath. In Christ we are saved from God’s wrath, so do these passages have any application for us? For you?
God’s wrath, or discipline, or affliction on His people can lead to great confusion and doubt about God’s purposes for His people. How do we get the right perspective as we walk by faith?
Achan took the devoted things and Israel is accused of sinning. Achan is to be punished and his family and livestock are punished with him. Why? Is this fair?
Nothing is more crucial to God’s people than to have God’s presence with them. In Joshua 7:12b we see God’s presence is tied to proper repentance and church discipline. How should that affect our lives?
Many think the punishment on Achan and his family was way too extreme. Do you agree? Why or why not?
