Joshua 9:14 —
“When we neglect prayer, we can be easily deceived and make wrong decisions. And when leaders do not pray, they also fail the people under them.”
Joshua 10:13 – What happened here? BlueLetterBible.org lists seven theories of what happened, as well as cautioning against “reports of a ‘missing day’ in ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Hindu sources … [and] the story of a Yale astronomer who found that the earth was twenty-four hours out of schedule.”

In the story, Lazarus never speaks. He is silent; he’s only there for contrast. He is not the object of the story. The story is not about his experience; it’s not about heaven. It is about the rich man’s experience in hell.
Luke 17:10 – Serving the Lord is not doing Him a favor; it is but our reasonable service (Romans 12:1).
