And Joshua did as he was told

Today’s Readings: Joshua 11:1-12:24, Luke 17:11-37, Psalm 84:1-12, Proverbs 13:5-6

Joshua 11 and 12 contain details of defeat of 31 kings in their conquest of Canaan. The one detail that jumps out at me is Joshua’s obedience.

15 As the Lord had commanded his servant Moses, so Moses commanded Joshua. And Joshua did as he was told, carefully obeying all the commands that the Lord had given to Moses.

The obedience of Joshua and his followers is emphasized in verses 9, 15 and 20. So as I look for love and justice this month, I am finding repeatedly that God repeatedly called His followers to obedience when He gave them clear instructions.
