Joshua’s last recorded words in a public forum are set in Joshua 24:15. A much quoted statement , it lies in the middle of a message that clearly excludes the worship of other gods for those professing dedications to Jehovah.Obviously it was the norm for them to worship multiple gods while still sacrificing to the LORD. Jesus narrows the word “gods” down to “mammon” in Matthew 6:24, and refers to the debasing influences that control our lives when our goals become material wealth and sensual pleasures. At best ,the rewards mammon offers are fleeting and temporary and usually leave a hollow craving within, if not guilt and shame as well. Jesus offers true “fullness of joy” and “pleasures forevermore”. Psalm 16:11.
Take time to praise Him today. Pastor W Jones
