Deuteronomy 6:1–13; Ecclesiastes 4:9–12
We can draw some relevant analogies between the ancient Hebrews and our modern-day churches. In the process, we will discover that even though centuries separate us, some of the same struggles, solutions, attitudes, and principles fit our situations perfectly. The people who entered the land of Canaan—the “new generation” of wilderness wanderers—were forced by the sheer determination of survival to pull together, to lock arms and link hearts, as they took on the challenge of invading the land under Joshua’s leadership. Sufficiently prepared by Moses before his death, the people committed themselves to the tough task of conquering Canaan, which they accomplished with the sovereign assistance of Jehovah. Divided, they could never have done it. Unified, they were strong. The same is true for churches today.
