our most capable

Joshua 1:12-15 (JDV)

Joshua 1:12 Joshua said to the Reubenites, the Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh:
Joshua 1:13 “Remember what Moses Yahveh’s servant commanded you when he said, ‘Yahveh your God will give you rest, and he will give you this land.’
Joshua 1:14 Your wives, dependants, and livestock may remain in the land Moses gave you on this side of the Jordan. But your most capable soldiers must cross over in battle formation ahead of your brothers and help them
Joshua 1:15 until Yahveh gives your brothers rest, as he has given you, and they too possess the land Yahveh your God is giving them. You may then go back to the land of your inheritance and take possession of what Moses Yahveh’s servant gave you on the east side of the Jordan.”

our most capable

Even though God’s intention was for all the Israelites to find rest, their most capable soldiers from the 2 1/2 transjordon tribes had to leave the land that they possessed to make sure that the other tribes could possess theirs.

Under the new covenant, the land we possess is the minds and hearts of the peoples of the nations to which God will send us as missionaries. Are we giving the most capable of our sons and daughters to this task? I think we can do better. We still need to invest our most capable until the whole work is done, and Christ’s name is named in every nation.

Lord, give us capable sons and daughters, and give us the courage to give them back to you.
