Can't See the Forest for the Tree

Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
At first glance what do you see? Probably the single Red tree. There is a whole forest of trees in the background but this one stands out because it is different. Joshua stood out because he was different. We live in a day and time when everyone is just trying to blend in, be accepted, keep your opinions and beliefs to yourself, and yet God calls us to stand out. We are not to be afraid to stand up for what we believe. To share the life changing reality of Christ with those we come in contact with. We do not have to be obnoxious to do it just different. The tree is very beautiful because it is different. Don't be afraid to tell others about Christ.
