Chapter-a-Day Joshua 4

Joshua erected a monument at The Gilgal, using the twelve stones that they had taken from the Jordan. And then he told the People of Israel, "In the days to come, when your children ask their fathers, ‘What are these stones doing here?’ tell your children this: ‘Israel crossed over this Jordan on dry ground.’"  Joshua 4:20-22 (TM)

Reading about Joshua’s monument, it got me thinking about all of the things God has done in my life. Nothing quite as dramatic as God stopping up the River Jordan, but personally dramatic and miraculous just the same. Are there any stones pointing people to remember those occasions? How will my children and grandchildren remember what God has done? It made me want to be more purposeful in doing something on these occasions that will serve as reminders to our girls and their children of what God has done for us.

  1. What a great idea!
    You can even get your girls involved in the project – all 3 of them.
    Since shemales really like that sort of thing they’ll do all the work and you’ll get all the credit! Way to go.
    I’ll have to figure out a way to introduce that concept into my family so that I get all the credit on my end. I’ll thank you here but invoke ‘Guy Rule #17″ (I think): “Ideas that result in improving status with those of the female persuasion are not claimable or copyrightable. All males surrender all claims to any such ideas for all time and are required to share them openly and widely for the greater good of the gender!”
