Important Records

Today's reading: Joshua 15:1-12

Joshua 15-16 (as well as the chapters we'll look at next week) detail the allotting of the land to the different tribes of Israel. These types of passages are most certainly not as engaging to read as the action-filled storylines and narratives of the previous chapters. Yet, they are an important part of biblical history. These chapters record and lay out exactly what took place with the Israelites, which was a necessary and important part of record keeping for Israel. However, these historical records are also important for us today in that they provide us with a picture of what was taking place and they help us understand other scriptures.

As you read chapters 15 and 16 to finish out this week, ask God to reveal something to you from each passage. And remember, the fact that these records are part of God's Word means that they are important to God and should therefore be important to us.

What do these chapters reveal about God's faithfulness in fulfilling His promises to the Israelites? What does that suggest about God keeping His promises to us? What do these passages show about God being interested in the details of our lives? Tami
