After Moses had served as leader, the Lord allowed Joshua to lead Israel into Canaan. He died at the age of 110 and there was nobody left who had personally experienced the exodus from Egypt. Israel grew more and more distant from God and was easily influenced by the communities they settled among. Idol worship was a key problem they struggled with. We are faced with a similar predicament today. Successive generations here are struggling to remain faithful to God despite the finished work of the cross. May the Lord have mercy. May we not let other things take up His place in our hearts and may our circumstances, good or otherwise, always point us back to Him. Judges 3:7-31.
