What Others Think

Joshua 9_2

After losing the battle at Ai, the Israelites feared a combined attack by the surrounding nations. The Israelites regroup, defeat Ai, and watch the nations gather together to attack them anyway. The circumstances mattered not at all.

Others will do what they will do.

But too often, instead of choosing God’s way, I compromise or back off, so as not to offend, out of fear…of what others might do.

Father, so often I’m driven by what others will think and do. Help me today to follow you instead.
