Thoughts for the Day

Numbers 28-31, Romans 2:17-3:8

Posted by Pastor Jeff Heimsoth on

“Have you allowed all the women to live?” he asked them. “They were the ones who followed Balaam’s advice and enticed the Israelites to be unfaithful to the Lord. . .” Numbers 31:15-16

Sometimes I gloss over those things I don’t understand, but that is not fair to God. Moses was angry because the soldiers had not killed the women of their enemy in battle as they had the men. I don’t understand, yet I know God operated in such a way that other cultures would not have influence on His people. I also know Jesus calls for us to bring the gospel to ALL people. We are not in the business of killing. Still, I don’t want to simply ignore incidents like this where I do not understand. God is beyond my understanding, but I want to grasp as much as I can. In this way I get to know Him better. That is a blessing.
