Where did Joshua gather the tribes of Israel for his farewell address?
How hold was Joshua when he died?
In what mount was he buried?
LESSON: Joshua was faithful all of his life. God was there with him at the end. He died with peace. Let us live faithfully and at the end God will be there, faithful in our work and faithful to the Lord.
PRAYER: Lord, I want to be faithful in all of my duties and responsibilities. Amen.
ARE YOU READY?
In Matthew 24:44 we find the promise, "Be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect." A school teacher told his class that he would be going into the hospital and recovering from surgery for several weeks. He offered to give a prize to the student whose desk he found in the best order when he came back. But he didn't know what day he would return. The prize was so nice, so nice that each child was determined to win it, including a little girl whose desk was always messy. Her classmates laughed, "Mary, you'll never win. Your desk is never neat." The little girl said that she planned to clean her desk on Monday of every week. bud somebody said, "But suppose he comes back at the end of the week?" Mary said, "Well, I'll clean it every morning." then another student reminded Mary that the teacher might return at the end of the day. for a moment the child was silent in thought. then she said, "I know what I'll do. I'll just keep it clean all the time!" If we want to receive the Lord's approval at His return, we must be ready all the time. We are to live in a constant state of spiritual preparedness, as well as "working 'til Jesus comes." Are you ready? Are you anticipating the moment when Christ will appear? Jesus could come at any time, so be ready all the time!
