The Daily Nosh: Joshua 2:12

So now, please swear to me by Adonai, since I have dealt kindly with you, that you will deal kindly with my father’s house. Give me a true sign (13) that you will spare the lives of my father, my mother, my brothers my sisters and all who belong to them, and save our lives from death.” (TLV) 



Even Rahab, the prostitute, rightly perceived God’s agenda concerning Israel and placed herself and her family in line with that agenda thus preserving her and her family’s lives from the impending disaster that was coming on the city around her. Success, even in hard times, follows the discernment of God’s purposes as well as the wise obedience and determined implementation of God’s direction for our lives.
