DAILY?READINGS: Ezra 7; Daniel 8; Revelation 3:7-22

…I wholly followed the Lord my God.  Joshua 14:8

This was Caleb’s testimony when he was forty years old. And it was his testimony when he was eighty-five. Praise God! He was marked by a life of faith and obedience. Even to old age his faith did not waver. He was an inspiration to Israel then and he still is to Christians today. It is possible to live a consistent, godly life, even to old age. The choice is ours. Caleb’s God is the same today, ready to strengthen faith and to enable us to persevere. And surely we need men and women today like Caleb to inspire the younger generation to live for God. Be a Caleb in this age. —Donald L. Norbie
