Word Wednesday.::72

Word Wednesday is posted every Wednesday. Each week I post a scripture that I've read that week that has spoken to me in a fresh way. I believe that if we read God's Word every day, He will give us at least one scripture every week that will impact us. Sharing Scripture with each other is like iron sharpening iron. Leave a comment and share a scripture that has impacted you this week.

Here's the scripture that stuck this week:

Joshua 4 The Message


After Joshua led the Israelites across the Jordan, they were to carry 12 stones and build a monument. In our society, we've built monuments as well, but I see a stark difference with the Biblical monument. Our monuments are usually built to honor people. We built them so we wouldn't forget our heritage and so our children could learn about our history. In our diligence to honor our past leaders, we've made the grave mistake that even churches have made: we've forgotten to honor God. That was the sole reason for this monument in Joshua 4. It wasn't to honor the people who crossed, or those who carried the stones, and it wasn't even to honor Joshua, who was one of the greatest leaders in the Bible. It was there to honor God and to make sure that future generations would remember what God did.

What's your Word?
