Exodus 23

2 comments on “Exodus 23”

  1. To the Israelites, the thought of waiting was discouraging.

    But In Romans 8:28, the Bible teaches us that in all things and I mean all things God works for the good of those who love Him. This means that in the midst of our discontentment and definitely impatience, we can trust God to work things out for our good, even when we don’t understand His timing.

  2. God was clear: He was going to lead his own people into the land He promised them. Obedience to him would have rewards, just as disobedience would have dire consequences.

    No others gods were to be worshipped ever by the Israelites: their ways were not compatible with true worship of Yahweh. If they were entertained they would be a snare to the Israelites. So where do I entertain other gods? I am reminded of what Jesus said: ““No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.”
    ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6‬:‭24‬ ‭NLT‬‬.
    There are daily choices to be made.

    Like the ancient people of Israel, we are called to walk under God’s almighty protection, to obey Him, to turn away from anything that entices us out of His ways, to find security in God alone, to exhibit integrity in all our dealings and truth in our words, as well as compassionate care and kindness, even to those who don’t like us. A high calling! Because we ARE His people we live like this, we don’t live like this to BECOME his people.
