September 4 – Judges 21

Peace by All Means
Judges 21

Text: And the children of Israel repented them for Benjamin their brother, and said, There is one tribe cut off from Israel this day.
Judges 21:6 KJV

Learn and Apply: The Bible is full of stories of judgement for sin, as well as mercy and compassion for the repentant heart. The children of Israel, having satisfied their holy anger, now wept over the missing tribe of Benjamin. If nothing was done to provide wives for them, the tribe of Benjamin would be wiped out, as they couldn’t marry the daughters of Canaan. The children of Israel repented for Benjamin and sought to show them kindness to preserve the tribe.

In the end, they found a solution to the problem, provided wives for the remaining 600 men of the tribe of Benjamin, and welcomed them back into brotherhood.

God showed us compassion in that while we are yet sinners Christ died for us and redeemed us from destruction. We too must be willing to show compassion to those who repent, and t them.the way of the Lord.

Pray: Father, thank you for your mercies and loving kindness to us; Help us to be compassionate to others in Jesus name.
