Heartbreaking really, but, definitely a passage we need to read and consider because, as hard as it might be to admit, we think, act and respond like those Israelites all too often.

Take a couple of minutes and read through Judges 1:22-2:5 again. As you read, focus on what these verses reveal about disobedience as it pertains to us and our lives. Then, consider what they show us about God and His perspective and handling of disobedience. What did you find? Tami W.
