Joshua 22:2 And said unto them, Ye have kept all that Moses the servant of the LORD commanded you, and have obeyed my voice in all that I commanded you: 3 Ye have not left your brethren these many days unto this day, but have kept the charge of the commandment of the LORD your God.
God had warned the 2 1/2 tribes that if they didn’t help their brothers get their portion of the promised land that their sin would find them out. Now Joshua tells them that they have kept their word. They did what they promised.
They could go home now. They could enjoy the land that God had given them.
Be sure your sin will find you out was a warning but they heeded it. They did keep their word. They did not sin by not fighting with their brothers.
What a great day to know that they had kept their word. God had blessed all the nation of Israel and now they could all go home to their families.
Know this, there are consequences to sin. We will always be His family. He will love us but that doesn’t mean that we will not face things that will hurt. Our laziness can cost us. Our apathy can hurt us. Be sure your sin can find you but it doesn’t have to and it didn’t in the the original story here in the Bible.
