A Buffet of Beliefs

Read Joshua 24:1–33

In the early 1900s, a smorgasbord table in Sweden was a meal where guests gathered before dinner for appetizers and beverages. Often it was held in a separate room before dinner. 

Now, a buffet is common type of restaurant that lets people can pick what and how much to eat. Patrons can have chicken, pizza, meatloaf, pie, and ice cream at the same time.

People often desire a spiritual smorgasbord as well. They like to combine bits of various religions to suit their tastes. 


“If you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve. Would you prefer the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates? Or will it be the gods of the Amorites in whose land you now live? But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24:15).


Joshua made it clear that his family would not participate in a buffet of beliefs. And neither should you. Your beliefs should always align with God’s Word.


Prayer Suggestion: Father, help me to always align my beliefs with Your Word.
