August 26, Friday Devotion

August 26, Friday DevotionJoshua 5:13-15
13 When Joshua was near the town of Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with sword in hand. Joshua went up to him and demanded, “Are you friend or foe?”

14 “Neither one,” he replied. “I am the commander of the Lord’s army.”

At this, Joshua fell with his face to the ground in reverence. “I am at your command,” Joshua said. “What do you want your servant to do?”

15 The commander of the Lord’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did as he was told.
Quick Notes/Questions
Joshua's question is a bit funny.  Are those who serve the Lord our friends or our foes?  Sometimes I think we are more hostile to others who are honestly trying to serve God to the best of their ability than those who want nothing to do with furthering the Kingdom.  Who are your friends and foes?  Which ones seem to be serving the Lord?
Quick Prayer
Lord Jesus Christ, may my focus not be on me but on you.  Amen.
