1st Corinthians 10:11 tells us “These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come”. We can learn much from the experiences of the Israelites. Exodus 13:17-18 tells us that God led the people, not on the direct route to the promised land, but through the wilderness. He also often leads us in the same way. Will our attitude be different than the attitude of the Israelites? Will we constantly complain when we think we are in a forsaken place?
