…choose you this day whom ye will serve … but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD (Joshua 24:15).
Joshua had gathered the leaders together.
He reminded them of the mighty works and blessings of God. Their fathers had not always followed Jehovah. At this time, they lived in the land of the Amorites and might be tempted to serve their gods.
The challenge is given to the people – you have three choices of whom you will serve: The “gods” of your fathers, the “gods” of the Amorites – or Jehovah God. Joshua declared that he and his house would serve Jehovah.
Whom will you serve? The “god” of money, lust, pride, praise? Whom will YOU and YOUR HOUSE choose to serve?
