God commanded Israel…
…to destroy the “high places” when they conquered the land of Canaan. But they didn’t. They left those sites of pagan worship and ultimately began to use them in the service of other gods. Generation after generation suffered because Israel did not completely eradicate these traces of sin.
When we do not destroy the “high places” in our lives, we risk our faith and even the faith of those we love, potentially for generations to come.
