Good Morning March 2

Be careful what you ask for because you might get it. There was an instance with the people of Israel when they were coming out of Egypt that they grumbled against God. One of the many actually. They had been fed with manna for many days, but they wanted meat. They griped and complained until God finally said, “You shall eat, (meat) not one day, nor two days, nor five days, nor ten days, nor twenty days, but a whole month, until it comes out of your nostrils and becomes loathsome to you; because you have rejected the LORD who is among you…”(Numbers 11:19-20) I’m wondering if that, at least in part, is not what this current election cycle is all about. We certainly hear a lot of grumbling and complaining. We want this. We want that. This candidate or that candidate will give us what we want. But what we want should be guided by a deeper understanding of what God wants for us, and the direction He desires for life. That doesn’t come from waving a Bible in the air, but by knowing clearly what is between its covers. By losing that foundation we may really get what we are craving, but I don’t think it will be for our good.
