“they called the name of the city Dan after the name of Dan their father (Judges 18:29)


Ancient Laish, captured by Dan
The northernmost boundary of the Promised Land
Dan dishonored God by their graven image
This city started out bad and got worse

People get the best from the Lord
Then ruin it by their selfishness and greed
Instead of serving they think they can manage
The Lord isn’t an errand boy for you and me

One day all of this fell apart
Evil was destroyed
Notice that Dan is a nature preserve today
The people that lived here disappeared 2,800 years ago

We can’t fool the Lord
He is interested in our obedience not our control
He calls us to be servants not masters
In Christ we have life
