Joshua 4: 1-7
The Israelites put forth a lot of effort for a conversation starter. It was work to dig twelve stones out of the riverbed. But they did it.
As Christians we look for opportunities to glorify God. This is great and we should continue to do this. But The Lord had asked the Israelites to take it one step further. He told them to create an opportunity to glorify Him.
The Israelites memorial was:
1) Out of the Ordinary

-rocks in a desert

2) Personal

-they were the ones who crossed the river

3) Glorifies God

-He was the one that dried up the river and brought them through
When praying about a conversation starter that The Lord would give you consider the Israelites’ memorial.
