Pondering the Scriptures Sunday #5

This week's scripture is found in Joshua 24:15.

"...choose you this day whom ye will serve ..."

Basically in this chapter Joshua was near the end of his life and as Moses had done, he gathered his people together for a final blessing and warning.  Joshua reminded Israel what God had miraclously done for them in the past and challenged them to choose whom they would serve.

Such messages as a prophet approaches death should be considered very significant for it seems to be an effort to reaffirm that his people have been informed and warned.  Thus full responsibility for their conduct squarely rests upon their shoulders and in that matter the prophet has fulfilled his duty.
