Scripture reading for March 22nd: Joshua 18-21, Luke 15
Key Scriptures: Luke 15:11-14 “And He said, “There was a man who had two sons. And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the share of my property that is coming to me.’ And he divided his property between them. Not many days later, the younger son gathered all he had and took a journey into a far country, and there he squandered his property in reckless living.”
Jesus told the story of a man with two sons. One son faithfully stayed with his father and worked. The younger demanded his inheritance and went and squandered it in reckless living. The younger son lost everything but decided to come humbly back to his father and was welcomed home. The older son was resentful and angry. The father wanted both his sons to possess their inheritance!
Joshua 18:3 “So Joshua said to the people of Israel, “How long will you put off going in to take possession of the land, which the Lord, the God of your fathers, has given you?”
Prayer: Lord, help me to recognize the great value of the inheritance You have given me and possess it by faith and obedience! Amen.
