Consider the amazing story of Joshua and his army calling a “time-out” on the war in order to find a place of worship! What does it mean to prioritize and centralize God’s presence and God’s Word in our lives?

Don’t make the same mistake twice!

Failure does not exempt us from future obedience. When it comes to His children, God is not a “one and done” Heavenly Father. Failure carries its own intrinsic lessons, and our future success depends upon our ability to learn and apply them.

Things ended badly for Achan and his family. In fact, at a surface glance, the whole story seems a bit unfair. But could it be that God was demonstrating mercy in the process? And what can we learn about the predictable nature of our own sin?

Instead of sucking your thumb, look inward and learn the lesson.

Defeats in our lives sting badly. If we aren’t careful, we’ll spend more time licking our wounds than learning the lessons that bad experiences teach us. Listen to how Joshua cycled through these emotions and emerged wiser on the other side.

Secret sin and self-confidence make a bad combination.

What does marching around a city have to do with walls coming down? Nothing. Unless, of course, God has told you to do it. Don’t let your ignorance of *how* God does things keep you from obeying *what* God has told you to do.

Before a stone ever cascaded down Jericho’s wall, the Lord led His people to affirm their relationship with Him. And before Joshua led the battle cry, he met the Captain alone at ground zero. Who I am in Him always precedes what I do for Him.

Teaching the next generation is more than assigning verses to memorize or Bible lessons to complete. It’s relating the wonderful, exciting, and sometimes frightening narrative of what He has done in your own life! Your kids need to see the unique way God’s fingerprints have touched your life.
