Judges 20:36-21:25 So the people of Benjamin saw that they were defeated. The men of Israel gave ground to Benjamin, because they trusted the men in ambush whom they had set against Gibeah...
Judges 20:36-48think about it.
In the thirst for revenge on the tribe of Benjamin, the men of Israel created a new problem; what was it (21:1-7)? How did they solve it (21:8-24)? One bad decision led to another with terrible results; how have you seen decisions made without God lead to greater tragedy? What one lesson will you take away from the Book of Judges?
As we wrap up Judges today, we continue to see the fallout from the story of the Levite and his concubine that started back in Judges 19. Now I'd like to tell you that things turn around and end well, but the Israelites don't seem to recognize or learn from their past errors.
All of us get out of step with God and His plan from time to time. So what can we do to help us recognize (as soon as possible) when this happens? And then, what are some things we might do to correct the problem? Tami W.
P.S. Did you have any special take away(s) from Judges?
