Joshua 8:34-35 – 34 Afterward, Joshua read all the words of the law—the blessings and the curses—just as it is written in the Book of the Law. 35 There was not a word of all that Moses had commanded that Joshua did not read to the whole assembly of Israel, including the women and children, and the foreigners who lived among them.
We often will see what we want to see, hear what we want to hear. In other words, we acknowledge the “blessings”, but ignore the “consequences”. We call the Bible the “Book of Blessings”, but forget that it is also contains “curses”. In today’s passage it reads, “34 Afterward, Joshua read all the words of the law—the blessings and the curses—just as it is written in the Book of the Law.” Yes, the Bible contains many blessings and promises, but it also contains consequences and curses. Remember, our actions can either please or disappoint the Lord. Our actions can either lead to blessings or curses.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
