Follow the Rules

"Please Follow the Rules"

May 6
A sign photobombed this picture of our girls.  It is in the Chattanooga Children's Museum and says, "PLEASE, FOLLOW THE RULES." It cracked me up when I downloaded the  photos and saw it!

Last week I completed a study on the amazing life of Moses. It's been so good, I'm going back and reading Charles Swindle's book The Man of Selfless Dedication-Moses.
Deuteronomy 32:51-52 has God speaking to Moses and Aaron (who has died).
"For both of you broke faith with Me among the Israelites at the waters of Meribath-Kadevsh in the Wilderness of Zin by failing to treat Me as  holy in their presence.  Although from a distance you will view the land that i am giving the Israelites, you will not go there."

Whew!  Moses and Aaron were some dedicated servants, but their rule breaking had some consequences.  While they didn't get to dwell in The Promised Land, we are told they were "gathered up to their people."  At 120 years old and all he'd been through with the Egyptians and the Israelites that probably sounded just fine to Moses!
