And Joshua said unto them, Pass over
before the ark of the LORD your God into
the midst of Jordan, and take you up every
man of you a stone upon his shoulder,
according unto the number of the tribes of
the children of Israel: That this may be a
sign among you, that when your children ask
their fathers in time to come, saying, What
mean ye by these stones? Then ye shall
answer them, That the waters of Jordan
were cut off before the ark of the
covenant of the LORD; when it passed over
Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off:
and these stones shall be for a memorial
unto the children of Israel for ever.

|Answering domestic call after domestic call we see children that are affected by horrible role models at
home. I even answered a call years ago where a mother had delivered her own baby, tied it in a trash bag,
and threw it in the garbage can like a piece of trash. Fortunately EMS arrived in time to save the baby, but
what a start for his young life. Our kids may never see the abusive environments we routinely deal with, but
they are still exposed to a tremendous amount of negative influences in this society we live in. As parents,
it's our responsibility to point them in the right direction, in fact God made it very clear in numerous places
in the Old Testament that He expects us to teach them the ways of God. One way we can do this is by
pointing out times in the past when God led us through a difficult time and delivered us.
In today's text Joshua had just led the Israelites through the Jordan River as they were preparing to
conquer the land God promised them. God had miraculously held the water back for the people to cross over,
and now we see Joshua commanding the people to build a memorial in that very spot. He told them to take
stones from the middle of the river bed to construct the memorial as evidence that God had parted the
waters for them. He did this to honor the Lord, and to show future generations that the Lord is faithful.
He said when your children ask what the stones are for; you are to tell them how God parted the waters.
What an incredible story to be able to pass on to your children! We may never see God part waters for us
to cross, but we don't have to. If we choose to follow Christ, we too will have stories to pass down. They
may not seem as dramatic as this one, but your children will appreciate them in the same way. Life is tough,
and it's not getting any easier! Our children need to learn they can depend on Christ to sustain them if they
will follow Him. Let's make our lives a living example of God's faithfulness so that they will have the
foundation they need.
