~Joshua 24 today~ The last chapter of this book! This may be the most well-known chapter of Joshua because it contains the verse: “But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” (24:15b) In this chapter, Joshua is asking the people to re-commit to the Lord. To give up old idols and serve the one true God. Sometimes we don’t want to give up our old idols because they make us feel comfortable and in control — gossip, revenge, mean-spiritedness, binge eating or tv, working extra hours just to be the best or most wealthy, the same old music we love even though there are terrible lyrics. I know, I know. No fun, right? The gains are worth it, though!!! What you give up is nothing compared to what you gain.
