Today's reading: Joshua 1:10-18

I was impressed with how Joshua handled his first days as a new leader. As he takes charge of the Israelites, he doesn't waste any time in giving detailed direction and orders to the people to pass over the Jordan to take possession of the land God had promised them. He was authoritative and the men of Israel received him as their leader and responded wonderfully.

What did you learn about responding to God from Joshua's example? What did Joshua show us about leadership in this passage? Tami

God did more than just command Joshua to be strong and courageous; He empowered him to be so. Dependence upon and obedience to Him are key to effective leadership. If we're to lead others effectively, we must follow Him effectively.

I like Joshua a lot. There were a lot of bad leaders in the old testiment, but Joshua was a very good leader of Israel and so was Moses. I love the story how Joshua fought the battle of Jericho; I like that song, too.
