I have a looming deadline, so I am going to encourage you to think through the nibbles today. These are the verses that jumped out at me today. As usual, I made a note of the verse, and my initial reaction.
I look forward to your comments! Even if you don't comment, I hope they will start you thinking and salivating for more of God's truth.
- Numbers 1:1-5 "writing down the names of every male." Comment: writing down 600,000 names? On clay tablets or on papyrus? That would have taken a lot of supplies!
- Numbers 1:4-5 "Pick one man from each tribe who is head of his family to help you. These are the names of the men who will help you." Comment: First God says, you pick, then He tells them the names.
- Numbers 1:52-53 "The Levites are responsible for the security of The Dwelling of The Testimony." Comment: The original Swiss Guard
- Numbers 2:9 "The total number of men assigned to Judah, troop by troop, is 186,400. They will lead the march." Comment: Men assigned to Judah included the men of Judah AND the men of Issachar and Zebulon. The other three leading tribes were Reuben, Ephraim, and Dan.
I invite you to inspire me and feed my soul today! And thank you.
