It is very good to read each story of the Bible, since in addition to being good, they are not simply “stories”, they are real, true cases, from which we can learn to apply to our lives. An example is the people of Israel, from them we can learn as much from their mistakes as from their virtues. This nation deviated from the road multitudes of times in spite of seeing the hand of God as it was with them.
In many moments the people of Israel forgot that God was their refuge and resorted to other “gods”. It is very true that in those situations they forgot all the favors, great and powerful acts that God had done with a strong hand for them. In the same way, God has also done powerful works in us and sometimes we forget that the Lord is our refuge, our hope and Rock of salvation.
