I find we often read stories of the Israelites and how they don’t have enough faith. But today we read a story of great faith; the story of the walls of Jericho crumbling down.
Imagine being told to march around a city seven times in order for the walls to fall down. That sounds completely irrational and out of the ordinary, and I’m sure the Israelites thought that too. But they showed great faith by listening to God rather than listening to their own thoughts.
We should show this kind of great faith in our lives as well.
