Joshua 13-15: When We Wholly Follow the Lord
Here are five things we can learn from Caleb’s life:
Today, let our hearts be in tune with God’s will as we seek to wholly follow the Lord!
I would love to think I am going to be as strong at 85 as I was at 40, wouldn't you? We may not be physically, but we can be spiritually if we choose to wholly follow the Lord!

Second time reading from this chapter this morning. Earlier this morning as I read, it was verse 24 which stood out to me. Much to learn from Caleb!

"...because he wholly followed the Lord, the God of Israel." Joshua 14:14b A lot can happen when we "wholly" follow God. A lot can happen when we don't. But I much prefer the life that happens when we wholly follow Him!!

YES! The spiritually and emotionally I can kind of get, Maryleigh. But the physically? I'm not anywhere near 85 yet and I totally am already not physically as strong as I was at 40! Not sure how he did that.

Yes, Debbie, Caleb's longevity—spiritually and physically are both encouraging as we journey on towards 85!

I hope I am stronger spiritually at 85 than I am today!

Certainly we do want to progress in that direction! :) That happens one day at a time, one moment at a time, and one decision at a time to "wholly" follow the Lord.
