Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with informed trust:
“They seized the livestock of the Hagrites—fifty thousand camels, two hundred fifty thousand sheep and two thousand donkeys.”
(1 Chronicles 5:21)
This was no petty theft, Jesus.
By Hagrite standards, this was an outrageous felony.
One which was fully sponsored by You.
In fact, without Your help, it wouldn’t have happened.
Couldn’t have happened.
This is why some people don’t like the 39 books of the Old Testament.
(If they read all 27 books
they wouldn’t like the New Testament, either.)
In fact, this is why many of those same people reject You.
“How could a loving God aid and abet
this kind of monstrous behavior by His people?” they ask.
They judge You
by what makes sense to them.
They hold You, the Creator of heaven and earth
hostage to their own tiny, limited understanding
that it all belongs to You.
