Initial Response

“Let the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation who may go out before them and go in before them, who may lead them out and bring them in, that the congregation of the Lord may not be like sheep which have no shepherd.” Numbers 27:16-17

This was the initial response from Moses after hearing he wouldn’t be entering the Promised Land with the children of Israel.

Oh Lord, help me think of others before giving an emotional response based solely on my feelings. And here’s a simple poem . . .

First care

Because You really know
it’s more about being “we”
than so many
“me, me, me’s”
please help us
think and act
as a congregation of One
under the Son.

Thank you for all of the beautiful comments and prayerful responses you add here.

Given For Others’ Needs

“Bring the tribe of Levi near, and present them before Aaron the priest, that they may serve him.” Numbers 3:6
“And they shall attend to his needs and the needs of the whole congregation . . .” Numbers 3:7

I read this and wonder how the Levites felt about being given to meet Aaron and the congregation’s needs? What if they had wanted to be farmers, artisans, shepherds or men of war?

Lord, please help me to want what You know I need. And to see the need behind others’ wants. And here’s a simple poem . . .

We, The Needy

Needs curl up in my lap
and sit across the table from me.
They ring on the phone,
call from the other room
and spill out of
opened envelopes.

I begin to
turn them over
and pick them up
by being ever so needy
of You.
