Though Israel had conquered Canaan, each tribe still had pockets of resistance to clear on their own. Ephraim and Manasseh did not do well. They compromised. Instead of fully driving out the inhabitants of the land, they tried to increase their wealth by making the Canaanites pay tribute. Compromise is a crack that allows Satan to sneak in to create big problems, robbing God’s people of His available blessings. Please open your Bible to Joshua, chapter sixteen as we look at this concept with Pastor Ray Viola, and learn what to avoid in our lives.
