God said to Joshua:

“Walk your people through a riverbed.
Defeat a city with marching and trumpets.
Single out one person that has sin in his heart.
Stand before the nation and make it known that no matter what you will serve me.”
This could have been Joshua’s response:
We’ll take a boat.
Went in with weapons.
Did away with the entire tribe.
Gone with the crowd.
But instead he remembered the words of the Lord before it all began,”Be strong and of a good courage”.
