Our Daily Choice

May 1 - Today's Readings - Joshua 22-24 and Psalms 121 What a powerful ending to the Book of Joshua – Verse 15 reads, “But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living.
