These things . . . were written for a warning to us.—1 Corinthians 10:11.
When the Israelites adopted the sinful ways of the Canaanites, Jehovah no longer granted them his protective care. (Judges 2:1-3, 11-15; Psalm 106:40-43) What a challenge it must have been for God-fearing families to remain loyal to Jehovah during those hard years! Nevertheless, the Bible reveals that there were faithful ones, such as Jephthah, Elkanah, Hannah, and Samuel, who were determined to gain God’s approval. (1 Samuel 1:20-28; 2:26) We live in a world where people think and act in ways that are similar to those in ancient Canaan—they glorify sex and violence and promote materialism. Jehovah has given us clear warnings—just as he did the Israelites—to safeguard us from such influences. Will we learn from the mistakes of the Israelites? (1 Corinthians 10:6-10) We must strive to remove any trace of Canaanitelike thinking from our lives. (Romans 12:2) Have we been faithful in making an effort to do so?
