God did WHAT????

Lately I've been studying about complaining and rebelling. You know, God really pays attention when we complain, and when we rebel against those God has put in authority over us. Now, that could mean the Government officials, the police, etc. But it also means our husbands, our bosses, our Sunday School teachers, and the Ministers in our church. Complaining and downright rebellion.

Want to see what God thinks? Read about Korah and his friends. You can read about them in Numbers 16. Korah and his "homies" thought they should have just as much authority as Moses. But God did not choose them to lead. He chose Moses. So, guess what He did. He was so angry, that he caused the earth to open up and swallow Korah, his 3 friends, and all their families. (If you think your decisions affect only you, think again.)

Man, everytime I think I'm ready to complain about choir, or something else in church, I have to remind myself, "God put Boyd in charge", or "God put Bro Roy in charge", get the picture. And, I immediately confess my sin of complaining and rebellion, and beg God not to open up the earth and swallow me and my family.
