Numbers is a bit…complicated.
It’s various lists.
It’s mess of individuals trying to put on a new identity while wandering for years.
It’s filled with talking donkeys, curses, healings, and a judgment on a leader.
God doesn’t make sense in this book.
A group must trust where God is leading but most won’t get to see where that is.
Numbers feels all too familiar as God invites them and us into participation and trust. It is there that we encounter God’s mercy and belief in His people.
- When was a time that God didn’t make sense to you?
- Where do you feel God inviting you into participation and trust?
