Joshua Chapter 4 gives a wonderful story of Joshua and Caleb. After forty years of wandering in the wilderness, they are preparing to lead Israel over Jordan and into the
Promise Land. God instructs Joshua to have two memorials erected, one on the shore of Gilgal and one in the midst of the river Jordan. These were established for when their children asked, “What mean theses stones?” the opportunity would be given to “brag-on God” (to tell what God had done for Israel).
We live in a day when people, especially our children & grandchildren, are seeking and searching for answers. This is no time to try to attempt “new” monuments or memorials. It is time to “brag on God.” What exactly has God done for you? There should “memorials” in our life, times where God was moving and when He was real to you. The last thing we all want to be said of the generation following us is… “and there arose another generation after them, which knew not the LORD, nor yet the works which he had done…”
What mean these stones? these are the past, present, and perpetual promises of God. He sure is GOOD.
