Take Home Points

  • First observe the patience of God even in the midst of His anger.
  • It is not a natural thing to fully confess our sin. Don’t be like Achan—don’t stop short of a full confession.
  • Without giving God what is His due, do not expect the blessing of God.
  • A great deal of sin in our lives will be defeated by daily being satisfied in God & being obedient to God.
