Bible Highlights: Joshua 6-8

Joshua 7:21

"When I saw among the spoil a good looking official garment from Shinar and 200 shekels of silver and one gold bar...I desired them, so I took them."


At Joshua 7:21 we see that Achan disobeyed a direct order by taking some things from Jericho that had been devoted to destruction. It was the desire of his eyes that led to his actions, and those actions affected the entire nation of Israel. Today we also see a variety of eye-appealing distractions, like in commercials on tv. What we see has a direct effect on our minds, which can effect our hearts. So it is very important that we are careful about what we feed our minds and that we exercise self discipline.
