Discussion for Joshua 2

    I've read this ch. many times, but just this time took notice of v. 10; Rahab says 'they' (her family) remember the Red Sea event. This had to have been told to Rahab as a child; she would be too old at this time to be in this 'lifestyle' still - or maybe not .....? Just as in Deut. God tells His people to read and talk of His word always, the Gentiles keep these stories alive.

    Tammy: So true! I have experienced very great kindness from the Lord, and from many of His servants and handmaids, along the way. But sometimes I've seen so much condescending and arrogance too. Jesus felt compassion for the crowds; and so should we, for the same reasons. When they were not able to receive the straight teaching; then He used parables, to reach them on a level they could relate to.

    I think this particular passage serves as a great reminder for us all, we must be also mindful of the saving power of kindness. I acknowledge that Jesus is the only way that mankind can obtain eternal life, but there are moments in times when the Father will remember our sacrifices or ministries of help to bless our love ones. The power of kindness. How would Rehab be viewed in a church of today?

    If we handle God's people well God will deal well with us.
