Joshua 6:21-23 (NIV)
21 They devoted the city to the LORD and destroyed with the sword every living
thing in it—men and women, young and old, cattle, sheep and donkeys. 22 Joshua
said to the two men who had spied out the land, "Go into the prostitute's house
and bring her out and all who belong to her, in accordance with your oath to
her." 23 So the young men who had done the spying went in and brought out
Rahab, her father and mother and brothers and all who belonged to her. They
brought out her entire family and put them in a place outside the camp of

Joshua and his men had surrounded the city of Jericho. When the trumpets
sounded the walls fell and the men rushed in killing every living thing in
sight, except the family of Rahab. Rahab had been a prostitute of the city, but
she felt the calling of the Lord to help the men who spied out the city so she
and her family were spared.

Rahab, was probably considered one of the least of the city and probably also
considered one of the least by her family. Yet, she survived because she
believed in what God could do, and she redeemed her family because of her
faith. We never know what God will do with us when we turn to Him, despite the
sins we have had in our past. In Matthew 1 where it gives a genealogy of Jesus
it lists Rahab in the lineage of Christ. Never give up and believe God can't
use you. God is always looking to use those who put their trust in Him. Pray
God use me and let me trust You more. Let my faith be evident in life my that
others may see and know You.
