Many years ago, as recorded in the Old Testament, the Israelites had to make a choice.
Who would they serve?
The true God?
The false gods of their ancestors?
Do you remember your childhood home?
Do you remember your grandparents’ homes?
Maybe even your great-grandparents’ homes?
Did they serve the LORD?
What legacy will you leave your children?
As for you and your house, who will you serve?
“Now fear the Lord and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your ancestors worshiped beyond the Euphrates River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”
