Saturday, December 26

They embittered his spirit, and he spoke rashly with his lips.—Ps. 106:33.


Although the Israelites provoked Jehovah, it was Moses who became embittered. His lack of self-control led him to speak without considering the consequences. Moses allowed the actions of others to distract him from keeping his eyes fixed on Jehovah. Moses handled the first incident correctly. (Ex. 7:6) Yet, it is possible that after dealing for decades with the rebellious Israelites, he had become tired and frustrated. Was Moses thinking mainly of his own feelings instead of how he could glorify Jehovah? If such a faithful prophet as Moses could be distracted and stumbled, the same thing could easily happen to us. Like Moses, we are about to enter a symbolic land, the new world that Jehovah has promised us. (2 Pet. 3:13) None of us want to miss out on that special privilege. To fulfill our goal, though, we need to keep our eyes fixed on Jehovah, always seeking to do his will.—1 John 2:17. w18.07 15 ¶14-16

You can't walk with God while holding hands with the Devil.

Moses is a faithful prophet that he became stumbled and distracted in doing against Jehovah's will because he is tired. The same is true for us today. We dont want to lose our hope in the future so we always fulfilling our goals seeking Jehovah's will. We know he can help us to have self-control, humility and courage.

All glory and praises goes to Jehovah :)

Even if we have a right to be angry, according to (Rom12:17-21)we still don't have the right to act on that anger. By doing so we are in affect taking our vengeance into our own hands, and not relying on Jehovah to correct matters when he sees fit. Better to allow ourselves to be wronged then to lose out because we didn't follow Jehovah's counsel to remain peaceable.
