The journey of the Israelites from Egypt, through the desert and into the promise land, continues to shake me up. What a picture of humanity! However, we all tend to distance ourselves from being anything like them. Their stiff-necked rebellion and obstinate behavior seems so odd to us, even comical at times. We’re not like them. We are after all more civilized… Are we?
“All of us like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; but the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him” Isaiah 53:6.
What a supreme picture of Grace: Golgotha. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on the cross.
It is very good that the stories of wandering, misfit souls are included in our Bibles, lest we forget we come from the same flock.
