The account of Israel and the Gibeonites teaches us that, as Christians, we should keep our commitments, even if we make an ill-advised promise that will make our lives difficult. The effectiveness of our testimony for the Lord depends a lot on our integrity. Despite the political pressure, Joshua honored the covenant with the Gibeonites, because they had sworn the oath in the LORD’s name. Please open your Bible to Joshua chapter nine, and listen as Pastor Ben Hiwale completes his study of this passage.
