Text: Joshua 2:1-14.

A proper family unit is not limited to the “nuclear” family of parents and children. In today’s passage, we read that there are other appropriate variations, including extensions by blood relations (grandparents, uncles, etc.), by adoption, and by some other ways. Polygamy (though found in Scripture), “same-sex marriage” into which children are adopted, etc., are not acceptable forms of family according to God’s original design.

Reflect on verse 8 and 9, what is God teaching you in these verses? What encouragement did the spies get after hearing Rahab’s testimony? How are you going to apply the verses in your life?

Father, I pray that You defeat all my enemies. Grant me victory over temptations from the devil? In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
