So who’s my favorite non-divine Bible character? It’s really hard to pick just one. There are so many I want to meet and talk to. One strong contender is Joshua, when he rallied the people to serve God in Joshua 24. He is an example of a great leader, something that the church sorely needs today. We would do well to emulate his strength, courage, and resolve.
Now therefore, fear the LORD, serve Him in sincerity and in truth, and put away the Gods which your fathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the LORD! And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the Gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the Gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
