To be honest, my husband and I have been thinking about Numbers 31 for a few hours now. I have far too many questions about its contents to even begin to unpack it all. Perhaps I’ll have something better to say about it next year…or maybe one of you would like to comment on it. Either way, I’m just letting you know that I’m sorta avoiding it.
My heart leapt when I read the following in Numbers 32: 12 when God was talking about all the tribes and men who had not chosen to follow Him.
“Except Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite and Joshua the son of Nun, for they have followed the LORD fully.’
You know what I immediately prayed? God, let that be the way you think of me. 🙂 I want God, when He says my name, to follow it with a “she followed me with her whole heart.” Yep. I can’t really imagine an epitaph better. That’s what I’m shootin’ for.
