Your Turn

This morning I sat down to write, but I realized that I don’t really have topic that is hitting me particularly hard right now.  I have some thoughts on some of the big issues going on in the world, but I am not quite ready to take a swing at some of those yet.  So, I am going to offer a challenge to you, faithful reader.

This morning as I read my Bible I looked at the destruction of the city of Ai in Joshua 8.  One verse stood out to me, an dI am interested in how it might impact someone else.  So, here is my challenge.  Read Joshua 8:17 and tell me your thoughts on it.  You might want to back up a couple chapters and get the proper context.  Here is the verse:

17 “Not a man was left in Ai or Bethel who did not go out after Israel. They left the city open and pursued Israel.” – Joshua 8:17

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it.  Please feel free to comment here on the blog page rather than on any of the other pages this gets posted to.  I will read them and will probably come back and share my thoughts on it next week.  Unless something else comes to mind!

Have a great week!

I'm a follower of Christ, husband, and father. Over the last few years I have been learning how to dig deeper into God's Word and letting it influence more of my life. As I learn, try, fail, and repeat in this process I am seeing God's hand more and more in my life and that of my family as well. This journey is long, hard, and at times a little lonely, but living a Relentless life for Christ has rewards that reach beyond me and my family. My prayer is that it brings God glory and leaves a legacy that will show His influence in my life.
