One More Time
Today's reading: Judges 21:25
Today is our final day in Judges, and for this ending day, I've chosen to focus on the very last verse in Judges where God tells us—one more time—"In those days. . . everyone did what was right in his own eyes" (Judges 21:25). This has been a recurring statement throughout the book (we considered it earlier here on P4), so it seemed appropriate to turn our focus back to this problem, especially with as much as God has highlighted it for us.
What have you seen, noticed or learned from the book of Judges about the problem of relying on and following our own understanding and desires? Was there any particular story or scenario that especially highlighted this problem for you and helped you understand it better? And lastly, a more general question to consider: What did reading about the judges of Israel reveal to you about God? Tami
