The parable of the sower tells us how the Gospel can grow to fruitfulness in a properly prepared heart. The story of Achan shows how sin and disobedience grow out of a dissatisfied heart. It begins when when see something that appeals to our flesh. Then we covet it so much that we reach out and take it, despite the consequences. Finally, like Achan and most sinners since Adam, we try to hide what we have done. Please open your Bible to Joshua chapter seven, verse twenty and listen as Pastor Ray Viola concludes his discussion of this chapter.
