"Stop Being Selfish!"
BIBLE READING: Joshua 16-18
Joshua has spent 40 years wondering in the wilderness because people had been selfish and had not trusted in God. Now, finally, it’s time to divide up the land and before it’s even finished people are complaining. “I don’t have enough land, give me more.” Why do we always want things handed to us? We will complain about anything. These people are in a land flowing with milk and honey. They are not in Egypt, they are not in the wilderness and yet they complain. Joshua is probably very tired and he plainly tells them you want more land go fight for it. Put your big boy pants on and go get it! They didn’t like that answer because it wasn’t easy. It wasn’t handed to them. When we pray to God, do we pray selfishly? Do we ask for a bunch of favors from God? Think about how blessed you are. When you pray, pray a big thank you to God for all the blessings you have in your life. Stop being selfish!
