Scripture Lesson: Joshua 4:1-9

In one of the most memorable games in World Series history, Carlton Fisk of the Boston Red Sox hits a 12th inning home run to force a game seven in the 1975 World Series giving the Red Sox a 7-6 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Fisk’s famous home run is made even more so as he waves for the ball to stay fair, down the third base line. One of the loudest ovations in this year’s 100 year celebration of Fenway Park occurred when Fisk came on the field.

In our Scripture lesson today Joshua creates a monument of stones taken from the dry river bed of the Jordan River to serve as a reminder of what God had done for them. In Chapter 3 we read about the nation of Israel crossing over into the Promised Land on dry ground. They crossed the raging Jordan River on dry ground when God caused the waters to stop when the Ark of the Covenant was carried into the river. The people all crossed on dry land. Joshua wanted the 12 stones to remind the people of the greatness of God and what He had done and will do for His people!

1. Why was that such a special day for the children of Israel?
2. Why was it important for the people to remember and be reminded of God’s greatness?
3. How has God shown His greatness to you?

Take some time today and remember what God has done for you. His greatness and care for us is something to always take time to remember and give thanks!
