*Happy New Year!*
“Moses brought their case before the Lord.” (Numbers 27:5 ESV)
By now, Moses understands – he can’t make quick decisions on his own. Especially here when lives are at stake, and the future will be written according to what will be decided here. He might not even have thought of it that way.
And why not bring the case before God? He has been continuously present and has shown sincere concern to Moses and Israel. He is not like human leaders that may at times be unapproachable.
Learn from this.
““Let the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, appoint a man over the congregation” (Numbers 27:16 ESV)
Moses prays for a successor. This is true servant leadership. Caring for the people placed under his care until the end, and even after that.
Both lessons are relevant to you now right?
