Achan’s Battle with Lust
God told Joshua, “Take nothing from Jericho for yourselves
But you shall bring them back for my glory.”
Achan disobeyed God, letting his lust take over
And hid the stolen items in his tent.
Well, life went on as usual
Time to fight the people of Ai. Easy, right?
The soldiers of Ai overthrew the Israelites
Thirty-six men they did kill.
Joshua cried,”Oh, Lord, why?
The Lord said, “There is sin in your camp.
Go, search and find who is responsible.
Joshua found Achan guilty
And they stoned him and his family and burned them
What would you have done?
Would you follow Achan’s example
Or would you let God take control?
