Your Influence

Today's reading: Joshua 24:14-28

Growing up, Joshua 24:15 was a verse that I literally saw every single day. You see my parents had a plaque secured over the doorbell to the main entrance to our house with this verse on it. So whomever came to our door would know immediately that we were Christians who were committed to following and serving God. Although I didn't realize it at the time, my parents' choice to post and live by that verse impacted me greatly. So guess what I have in my home today, years later? A wall sign of Joshua 24:15 that declares to those who enter my home:

"But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD" (Joshua 24:15).

Although my parents have both passed on and are with the Lord, their legacy lives on. I am grateful for their godly example and how their choices and lifestyle have influenced, and continue to influence, my choices and lifestyle today.

Identify one example in the past two weeks of you living out Joshua 24:15, "But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." What does Joshua's impact on those around him suggest about the impact you have on your family? In your church? Workplace? School? Neighborhood? How much thought have you given to the legacy you're leaving for your family and those around you? Why is this important? Tami
