ME then WE

I was reading in the book of Joshua this week in my quiet time and something jumped out at me.

It was two words - the words "ME" and "WE."

These two words are found in Joshua 24:15. It says this.

"But if you refuse to serve the Lord then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for ME and my family, WE will serve the LORD.”

Notice the progression - ME comes before WE.

It reminds me of another verse found in I Timothy 4:16.

"Keep a close watch on how you live and on your teaching. Stay true to what is right for the sake of your own salvation and the salvation of those who hear you."

Notice what it says in this verse. It says you must first watch how you are living and teaching if you want to impact those who you minister to.

If you want to impact peoples' life, then ME must come before WE.

If you want to see kids and families have a growing relationship with Jesus, then ME must have a growing relationship so WE can follow our example.
