We all serve someone or something.
After escaping slavery in Egypt and wandering in the desert for 40 years, the LORD gave his people the promised land--Canaan. Through Joshua and his army, the LORD ousted the pagans from Canaan, and the people went in an possessed Canaan. At the end of it all, as Joshua prepared to die, he said to the people, "Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord." (Joshua 24:14-15)
Joshua was pointing out an important truth to the Isrealites, and to all of us. We all serve someone or something. There is no escaping it. We were created to serve. So we must choose what and how we serve.
