January 27 - Joshua 24:29-33

January 27 - Joshua 24:29-33

29 After these things Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died, being 110 years old. 30 And they buried him in his own inheritance at Timnath-serah, which is in the hill country of Ephraim, north of the mountain of Gaash.

31 Israel served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders who outlived Joshua and had known all the work that the Lord did for Israel.

32 As for the bones of Joseph, which the people of Israel brought up from Egypt, they buried them at Shechem, in the piece of land that Jacob bought from the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for a hundred pieces of money. It became an inheritance of the descendants of Joseph.

33 And Eleazar the son of Aaron died, and they buried him at Gibeah, the town of Phinehas his son, which had been given him in the hill country of Ephraim.

I love the comment that Israel the Lord the days of Joshua.  What a great leader he must have been to garner so much respect that they followed God during his leadership and the time those who were elders during his tenure were alive.  He caused people to set up and take notice and they were obedient.  I would love to know I impacted God’s people in such a way. 

What would you like for people to remember you for at the end of your life?

What changes do you need to make to have it happen?

Heavenly Father, I want to live for You in such a way that my life causes others to see You in a new way and desire to follow You.  Help me reflect You in all I do.  Help me to make the changes I need to make so others don’t see me, they see You.  I want my life to be about loving You, praising You, and helping others come to know You.  I want to become less of me and more of You more and more every single day.

In Jesus’ name.
