2 Vs 10

July 2, 2023

Joshua 7:2
Joshua sent men from Jericho to Ai, which is beside Beth Aven, on the east side of Bethel, and spoke to them, saying, “Go up and spy out the land.” The men went up and spied out Ai.

Those of us that grew up in the 70s / 80s in Sunday School, remember singing the song about this expedition. It was always fun to hold up our fingers as we sang. 10 were bad and two were good. But take a moment and think about the two that stood up in faith and opposed the 10. How many times do we just go along with the crowd because it’s easier? Two against 10 is not a great ratio for the two opposing men. This can also bring about the concept in our churches where 20% of the people do 80% of the work. Why is that? Which side of that ratio am I? How many times do I take the easy way out? Today let’s dare to be different and rise above the level of mediocrity.
