And Achan answered Joshua, “Truly I have sinned against the LORD God of Israel, and this is what I did: when I saw among the spoil a beautiful cloak from Shinar, and 200 shekels of silver, and a bar of gold weighing 50 shekels, then I coveted them and took them. And see, they are hidden in the earth inside my tent, with the silver underneath.” – Joshua 7:20-21 ESV
We must understand our patterns. Social media, pollsters, businesses all work hard to identify these algorithms and ACT accordingly so that it is more profitable to their mission. We must identify MAN’s pattern for destruction; I SAW, I COVETED, I TOOK. Whether it is Eve in the Garden (Gen 3:6), or David and Bathsheba (2 Sam 11:2-5)- The pattern is the same. Next we change the meaning of things to fit our B.S; from Adultery to affair, murder to choice, fornication to love, coveted to spoils.
Leader, when we have an FOS (Flesh Operating System)- the pattern is impossible to change. However, when we REPENT to the original GOS (God Operating System) THEN our thinking is transformed and we have a NEW BEGINNING (2 Cor 5:17).
Conduit, Be blessed with the understanding that the reason for your existence is to GLORIFY GOD. Everlasting Life is a gift of the GREAT I AM, that is received through humble acceptance of the BLOOD OF JESUS as the CHRIST, the REDEEMER, the PERFECT sacrificial LAMB! Today, REBOOT to God’s algorithm; See, Serve, Share, Save
