Ageless Serving

Today's reading: Joshua 14:1-15

The task of dividing and distributing the land west of the Jordan to the remaining nine and a half tribes fell to Joshua. When the people of Judah approach Joshua about their inheritance, Caleb steps up and speaks out, reminding Joshua of his past faithful service as one of the spies Moses sent to into the Promised Land, and Moses' promise to Caleb "'The land on which your feet have walked will be your inheritance and that of your children forever, because you have followed the LORD my God wholeheartedly'" (vs. 9). Caleb is now 85 years old, but is as energetic, determined and courageous as he was 45 years earlier when he first entered the land. What an inspiration and example! As I finished up this passage, my prayer was for God to help me have the mindset and attitude of Caleb.

What does Caleb's example show about serving the Lord no matter our age? How did Caleb's trust in God impact his attitude and actions-as a 40-year-old man spying out the land, and as an 85-year-old asking for his inheritance? What does following the Lord "wholeheartedly" mean to you personally? What about Caleb (actions, words, attitude, beliefs, etc.) stood out to you most from this passage and why? Tami
