The Anatomy of Temptation
Today’s reading: Joshua 7:1-9:27
I once spoke to a men’s group on the subject “Things I learned the hard way”. One of the things most of us learn the hard way is that sin never delivers the pleasure it promises. In today’s reading, Achan learned this lesson and became the horrible example for all of us. Learn from him. Try not to learn the hard way.
