s“Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
Joshua gathered all the leaders of all the people of Israel to remind and encourage them. He was a leader who modeled decision making and responsibility. He spoke plainly about the options and drew out a line in the sand. He made the decision clear. And Joshua did not leave those around him guessing where he stood.
A man who stands for everything stands for nothing. Joshua was not that man. He decisively picked a direction and took responsibility for it. Consider what spiritual stance you take in your daily life and how you model that to those around you. Inspire others to make a decision by making yours. Live your faith out in a way that leads others.
DO THIS TODAY: Model what you stand for.
