Righteous Lord, in the years after Joshua died the Israelites abandoned their devotion and obedience to you and worshiped the gods of their neighbors. You withdrew your support and abandoned them to their enemies. Later you were moved to pity by their groanings as they suffered under the enslavement of their enemies, and you raised up a judge to deliver them. They worshiped you in gratitude, for a while, but then slipped back into apostasy. Losing your patience with them, it is written that “the anger of the Lord was kindled against Israel, and he said, ‘Because this people has transgressed my covenant that I commanded their fathers and have not obeyed my voice, I will no longer drive out before them any of the nations that Joshua left when he died, in order to test Israel by them, whether they will take care to walk in the way of the Lord as their fathers did, or not.’ So the Lord left those nations, not driving them out quickly, and he did not give them into the hand of Joshua.” Judges 2:20–23 (ESV). Lord, just as it was in the days of the patriarchs, we believers in modern times can so easily be enticed by the idols of this age: social media, greed, the pursuit of wealth for wealth’s sake, rampant consumerism and materialism. Soon the temptations of the modern world can completely divert us from what is truly important- worshiping you and loving you with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. Keep our faith strong and centered on you, we pray. Amen.
