Be Faithful – Joshua 7:1

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Joshua 7:1
But the Israelites acted unfaithfully in regard to the devoted things; Achan son of Carmi, the son of Zimri, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, took some of them. So the YHWH’s anger burned against Israel.

We’re all familiar with the walls of Jericho falling down because of Israel. However, many seem to look over this element of that event. The Israelites were commanded to stay away from the spoils of this war in Joshua 6:18 and 19.

Achan didn’t obey. This resulted in Israel losing their next battle. One man brought a defeat to the whole army of Israel. All for just a few things that he hid under his tent. He and his family were stoned to death as a result. The saddest part of this story is if he had just waited for the next battle, he could have gathered all the spoils of war he wanted for himself and his family. YHWH gave all of Israel the spoils from the next battle. They had to show themselves faithful first. Only if he had obeyed, he would have been rewarded.

Be faithful to YHWH and you will be rewarded.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
