Joshua 9:14-15 – ERV

The men of Israel wanted to know if these men were telling the truth. So they tasted the bread—

but they did not ask the Lord what they should do. Joshua agreed to make peace with them.

He agreed to let them live. The leaders of Israel agreed with this promise of Joshua.

Joshua was the man that God called to take the Israelites to the Promise Land. He was

told early on to stay in a God’s Word and he would prosper. The times that he had gotten

off track were the times that he didn’t check in first with God for counsel. A neighboring

people tricked him by putting on a big production. Joshua believed them because the

“false story and props” seemed legitimate and the rest of the leaders followed his error.

Beware, always check in with God and He will never lead you astray.
