The choice he made
What would he say that could make a difference?
What Joshua told Israel was this: “. . . choose for yourselves today whom you will serve . . . but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD” (Joshua 24:15).
The choice we make
Joshua remembered walking on dry ground as God held back the Red Sea for Israel to pass safely through, and then brought those waters crashing down on the pursuing Egyptians.
For forty years in the wilderness, God had provided.
He had promised to give them the land of Canaan, and now here they were!
“Choose whom you will serve,” Joshua pleaded. Based on long experience with the ever-faithful God, Joshua made his choice, and Israel would make theirs.
And so will we.
