When God’s people crossed the Jordan River into the Promised Land, God told Joshua to choose 12 men, one from each tribe, have each one take a stone from the middle of the river, and carry it to their campsite that night. Joshua 4:6–7 from The Good News Bible says: “These stones will remind the people of what the LORD has done. In the future, when your children ask what these stones mean to you, you will tell them that the water of the Jordan stopped flowing when the LORD’S Covenant Box crossed the river. These stones will always remind the people of Israel of what happened here.”
What do the Stones of Remembrance mean to us? God is faithful and with us always.
