    Moses and Jehovah God knew the disobedient and hard-headed ways of the people.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Bravo Moses! You did as the Lord commanded and fought the good fight. A crown of glory awaits. Interestingly, though sadly, the stiff-necked Israelites did not change. Those who chose the path of righteousness were blessed and those who continued in their whoring and idolatry were cursed. The moral of the story is that the choice to serve or not to serve God with all our heart is ours.

    This is a beautiful word from God I.it's very encouraging and it makes me feel like I am not on my own.it also brings light to the fact that God is still in charge. At work today I experienced a great injustice a friend of mine and co worker was fired because of a lie that was told on him he didn't even get to defend himself against it.they didn't even take into sconsideration that he had been working here 15 years! They just took the word of the person that told the lie on him.
