TOPIC: HAVE A REASON FOR YOUR COURSE
If you hear it said about one of the towns the lord your god is giving you to live in that troublemakers have arisen among you and have led the people of their town astray, saying, "let us go and worship other gods” (gods you have not known), then you must inquire, probe and investigate it thoroughly. And if it is true and it has been proved that this detestable thing has been done among you, you must certainly put to the sword all who live in that town. You must destroy it completely, both its people and its livestock.
You are to gather all the plunder of the town into the middle of the public square and completely burn the town and all its plunder as a whole burnt offering to the lord your god. That town is to remain a ruin forever, never to be rebuilt, and none of the condemned things are to be found in your hands. Then the lord will turn from his fierce anger, will show you mercy, and will have compassion on you. He will increase your numbers, as he promised on oath to your ancestors— because you obey the lord your god by keeping all his commands that i am giving you today and doing what is right in his eyes.
God will not do anything without a reason he is god though and have the authority to do anything without being questioned yet he chooses to have a reason, oh such a gentle god. He asked the people to investigate about an act of idolatry before they put to death the offenders. It is just wise to find a reason for a course and not just make quick conclusions.
Prayer:-pray for mercies for all those in idolatry and being influenced by alcohol
