It is easy to rush over the names of the cities in our readings; but if we dig deeper, we find there is a reason each one is named.

Joshua 19:28, “Ebron, Rehob, Hammon, and Kanah, even to populous Sidon.”

“Sidon – Though included in the inheritance of Asher, this town was never possessed by them, (Judges 1:31).” Critical and Explanatory Commentary, Vol. I

When I read that statement I wondered, “Are there things that are part of my inheritance that I have failed to possess?”
