Simon Sinek wrote a book called “Leaders Eat Last” Joshua was a leader who ate last and put others first. Joshua waited until everyone else got God’s best for them before he asked God for his share. Joshua was selfless.
The word of God is rich with Gods promises toward the children of God. But as it was then, even so, is it today, there are enemies to us possessing our inheritance and we must be willing to fight for what is legally ours.
God has given us this life not just that we can have a great life but so that we can share it with others. Everything that God gives us is intended to be shared with others. God’s blessings, mercy, grace, power, wisdom, hope, peace, and everything else that is God’s is given to us for us to enjoy and to share.
Not only is the principle of follow-through particularly important in sports, but profoundly imperative in one’s spiritual life.
How big is the God you serve? The question really is, how small of a box do we try to fit Him in? Today’s reading from Joshua deals with the life of Israel and gives us some important principles to remember
Nobody likes problems, but while problems and struggles can make us more dependent on God, on the other hand, success can be dangerous. Success often breeds carelessness. When everything is going smoothly we have the false idea that we can handle everything by our own strength and we weaken our trust in God.
