"Stick to Me Like Glue"

“But be very careful to keep the commandment and the law that Moses the servant of the LORD gave you: to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to obey his commands, to hold fast to him and to serve him with all your heart and all your soul." Joshua 22:5

I must have read this verse dozens of times over my lifetime and yet it is new every time. Today as I was reading it the phrase “to hold fast to him” stuck out to me. I immediately thought of when the kids were little and while we were out shopping I would take their hand and put it onto my hip and say “Stick to me like glue.” They would hold onto my sweater, belt loop, pant leg, or elbow. This is what God is saying to me, His child, “Stick to me like glue.” Stay with me, don’t wander off. J.
