Hazardous Pride

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Judges 21:1-24

The consequences of the horrific abuse and killing of the Levite's concubine continue postwarfare (that ripple effect that I wrote about yesterday). As we arrive at Judges 21, almost the entire tribe of Benjamin has been killed in an awful battle between relatives—one that could have been avoided. And now damage control kicks in.

What do the conflict, warfare and postwarfare activity we see in Judges 20-21 reveal about the dangers of prideful thinking and actions and of being unwilling to confront sinful behavior? Tami

They ignore God's law and they do not obey them.

I think, it breeds hypocrisy and instead of repenting of our sins we point the finger at others who we think their sins are worse than ours sins.
We major on others' wrongdoings and we minimize our sins. Double-standard.


We have been reminded that they not only have a king they do not have a good king who would hold the standards higher.The only perfect king would be Jesus.
