Numbers 16, Day 1

April 22, 2009 at 11:00 am (Uncategorized)

The most impacting scripture I have been in lately is Numbers 16.  I am going to spend a few days (not sure how long, really!) blogging about what God  has been teaching me there.  The day this journey started I posted a quick note.

Today, I want to set the stage for the story a little.  Moses and the Israelites are hanging out in the wilderness.  They, because of their stubborn refusal to trust God, have been there much long than God originally intended.  Moses literally laid down the Law, and people of Israel consistently and quickly broke it.  Even Moses did too!  And there are always consequences for disobedience.

In Numbers 15, Moses, under the direction and guidance of God, had a Sabbath-breaker put to death.  Here is  big warning for anyone in leadership:  If you have to call sin on the carpet, be prepared for trouble!  Even if you do the right thing, the God thing, you may find some trouble just around the corner. Moses did find himself in a sticky situation.  More tomorrow.

Where have you seen this proven true?
