Realizing The Importance Of A Gift When Given
The Passover season is now over, but our approach to understanding and living properly before God continues. Today, we’d like to look at the lives of two individuals from very different walks of life and their approach to what God had given them both. This account of these two people from different walks of life with very different circumstances is what we’d like to explore today. It is a true story, although we might have to imagine how some of the accounts actually took place. Nonetheless, it factually occurred from what we see in God’s Word. It’s the account of how one individual did not realize the gift that God had given him, being a part of Israel and how the other individual, a person who was considered low, morally, living in a doomed city, rose up and trusted the living God for her deliverance. The incredible thing is that the individual who had everything going for him, a part of the children of Israel, lost everything including his life, while the woman with little going for her survived.
By extension, let us examine our approach to God and consider what He has given us.
