 The Joshua Jar

Color:  gallery line

              When the children of Israel crossed the Jordan River, the Lord instructed them to take twelve stones from the river bed to the other side with them.  These stones were to serve as a sign, a memorial forever of God’s wondrous works in bringing His children into the promised land.  The stones were not only to be a reminder to the adults, but were also there to provoke questions from the little ones, providing a means for fathers to teach them about our heavenly Father and His ways.  Read the whole story in Joshua 3 and 4.   

            In the same way, this Joshua Jar and its collection of stones is to be a visible reminder of the Lord’s working in our lives.  On each stone, write the name of a special gift from God (husband, wife, son, daughter, job, home, etc.), an occasion when the Lord met a need, or a time when He met you in some special way.  Add new stones to commemorate God’s blessings as you continue to walk with the Lord.  Then when your children ask you what these stones mean, tell them how God has faithfully met your needs and build in them the knowledge of our heavenly Father and a relationship with Him based on His faithfulness to your family.  

“Daddy, what’s THIS stone for??”
