Monday - We read about Numbers 13-14 and learned how God told Moses to select leaders from each of the twelve tribes. God also became angry with the Israelites and their lack of faith, and had them wonder in the desert for 40 years. The only people able to go into the Promised Land was Caleb and Joshua because of their faith.
Tuesday - Today's reading was in Deuteronomy 31-34, where Moses passed on at Mt. Sinai and Joshua becomes the new leader. We read about Rahab hiding the spies on her roof and asking for protection for her and her family when they come back to invade the town (Joshua 1-2).
Thursday - We read about Joshua 1-4 and 6 about crossing the Jordan River and how it stopped flowing long enough for the the people to cross, like the Red Sea. Twelve stones were picked from the center of the river to represent each of the tribes.
