Day 67

Day 67 Reading – Numbers Chapters 31-32

Moses said to the Gadites and Reubenites, “Should your fellow Israelites go to war while you sit here?”  Numbers 32:6 NIV

IT began a long time ago . . .

What is IT?

The desire to sit in the back and enjoy the sights while everyone else does the work.

The Israelites had many battles to fight as they entered the promised land, but some wanted to stay where they were to enjoy the land at the edge.

How often have you left the work to others?

How often have you resisted change and wanted to stay in the place you were?

Read the rest of the story . . .

I still wonder what blessings were missed by those left behind.

Sure they went to fight the battles, but they were not “all in” as the saying goes.

How about you? Are you all in?

Day 68 Reading – Numbers Chapters 33-34


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.
