Leave It Behind

Today's reading: Joshua 24:1-33

With Joshua now nearing the end of his life, he gathers all the tribes of Israel to deliver a message he has received from God. He reminds the Israelites of their long relationship and history with God, and how it was God who brought them to and then gave them the Promised Land. Joshua then challenges the people to leave their past behind by choosing to live fully and wholeheartedly for God. All of Israel renew their covenant with God saying to Joshua, "We will serve the LORD our God. We will obey him alone" (vs. 24). After Joshua dies, Israel continues to serve the Lord throughout the lifetime of those who had experienced all the Lord had done.

Have you made a decision (chosen) to leave your past behind in order to wholeheartedly follow after the Lord? If so, have you specifically made this declaration to God? Have you verbalized it to others? How does telling God and others about your choice helpful and of benefit to you? Tami
