Thought for the week

The importance of following God in your everyday decisions

"And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the LORD, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Joshua 24:15

Have you ever had to make a really important decision very quickly? And as if making a tough decision weren't difficult enough, sticking to that decision can be even harder!

But really, leadership is all about making tough decisions. And wherever God has you as a leader (and whether you know it or not, you are one), you're going to have to make difficult decisions quickly and stick to those decisions even if they aren't popular.

That's why I love Joshua's quick thinking here. Despite the fact that it was clearly an unpopular decision, Joshua says unequivocally, "But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." And do you know what happened? Israel responded by saying, "Far be it from us that we should forsake the LORD to serve other gods" (24:16). If it hadn't been for Joshua's risky decision, who knows which god Israel would have followed?!

Whether it's laughing at an inappropriate joke or gossiping behind someone's back, you have to make decisions like this each day. So when you are faced with these small decisions to follow God or not, remember Joshua's decisive leadership and how he led others to God just by making the right decision
