Pray For MY HOPE

SCRIPTURE

“Because your men explored the land for forty days, you must wander in the wilderness for forty years—a year for each day, suffering the consequences of your sins.”

~Numbers 14:34, NLT

QUOTE

No sin is small. It is against an infinite God, and may have consequences immeasurable. No grain of sand is small in the mechanism of a watch.

~Jeremy Taylor

COMMENTARY

The unfaithful spies spend 40 days searching out the land but they brought back an evil report and destroyed the faith and courage of the Israelites. For this sin, they were given 40 years in the wilderness of wandering. We always seem to reap more than we sow. One sin can have enormous consequences. Adam and Eve committed one sin and we are still reaping the consequences. The Jews said at the trial of Jesus, “Let His blood be on us and our children.” This one sin by one generation has affected every generation of Jews since.
