Day 88 Reading – Joshua Chapters 22-24
And when the Israelites heard that they had built the altar on the border of Canaan at Geliloth near the Jordan on the Israelite side, the whole assembly of Israel gathered at Shiloh to go to war against them.
JOSHUA 22:11-12 NIV
We should be able to identify with this story. How often we rush to judgement based on what we have seen or heard. Let it be said that facts should never get in the way of an opinion.
The Israelites didn’t have the facts. They thought their brothers were rebelling against God. The facts were anything but that.
Calmer heads prevail and before war there is a coming together.
There is an open dialogue.
There is understanding.
We are still trying to learn the lesson . . .
Get your facts straight
Don’t rush to judgement
Is there someone or something in your life that needs a second look?
Be careful the conclusions you draw when all the facts are not known.
Day 89 Reading – Judges Chapters 1-2
