Are We “Content” or “Contentious?”
Israel’s 40 years in the wilderness after their miraculous deliverance from slavery in Egypt is a lesson for all who would want to please God. Are we content with all the good things God provides? Or, have we too often fallen into the traps, the habits, that characterized the majority who left Egypt, and as a consequence failed to enter the Promised Land. Are we complaining about food, water, the daily grind, without giving thanks for all the blessings? What are the pitfalls we must avoid, and what are the attitudes and actions we must adopt to receive our inheritance?
