Joshua series: The children of Israel heard say (September 8, 2019)

The children of Israel heard say (September 8, 2019) – Elder Bryce Lowrance begins by considering the command of the Lord to forgive one another before turning to Joshua chapter 22 and the account of the altar. He looks at how the children of Israel were ready to go to battle and destroy the children of Reuben, Gad, and the half tribe of Manasseh based on a rumor and assumption. He looks at what happened when the two sides talked with one another. Brother Bryce ultimately exhorts us to talk to our brothers and sisters in Christ and not act solely upon a rumor. He ends with considering the proper way to handle private offenses according to Matthew 18 and revisiting the subject of forgiveness by noting that when we forget to forgive, we tend to forget that we’re forgiven in Jesus Christ.
