Bible Text: Joshua 7:13-26 |


Our lives affect those we have contact with, positively or negatively, whether we intend it or not. When Israel began conquering the land of Canaan, they were to destroy everyone and everything in Jericho as a first-fruit offering to God. They were to take no plunder/goods from Jericho. But, one man, Achen, did. His sin paralyzed the nation. Trying to hide his sin didn’t work, Hebrew 4:13. Only after he was caught did he confess his theft. As a result, Achen lost everything, including his life and family. Unconfessed and hidden sin is like a cancer. Diligently seek to obey every word from God. Strive to be a positive, godly influence on everyone you encounter.
