Day 62

Day 62 reading – Numbers Chapters 18-20

Why did you bring the LORD’s community into this wilderness, that we and our livestock should die here? Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to this terrible place? It has no grain or figs, grapevines or pomegranates. And there is no water to drink!  Numbers 20:4-5 NIV

Really?

Again.

The Red Sea. The Manna. The Quail. The Golden Calf deal. The ground swallowing the rebels.

Really?

After all that God has done.

After all that they had witnessed . . . the complaints begin again.

We would never do anything like that . . .

This time the anger burns within Moses as well.

The water comes, but at a price for everyone.

How much have you forgotten?  At what cost to your life today?

What blessings in your life do you need to recount today?

 

Day 63 reading – Numbers Chapters 21-22

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
