Twenty-Third Day after Pentecost:

Numbers 22:28, 32

''When that happened, Yahweh told the donkey to speak, and it asked Balaam, ''What have I done to you that made you beat me three times?'' ... The angel said, ''You had no right to treat your donkey like that! I was the one who blocked your way, because I don't think you should go to Moab.'' Numbers 22:28 and 32

All too often we are willing to shoot the messenger in our dislike of the message before us. We want to discredit the signs that we are in the wrong. We cast blame upon others, offer up doubts as proof, and focus our attention upon maintaining the course upon which we have embarked. In the process, we find ourselves bull-headed, stubborn, and refusing to see beyond what we have already assumed as truth.

Matthew 13:52

''So he told them, 'Every student of the Scriptures who becomes a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like someone who brings out new and old treasures from the storeroom.''' Matthew 13:52

Very often I hear Christians speaking about how the Old Testament no longer applies to our lives, since we are New Testament believers in Jesus. I then hear others proclaiming that only what their grandmothers taught them has validity. Others want to do away with the Bible in its entirety as being ancient, archaic, and passe. Then we read these words of Jesus. Suddenly, none of those positions seem to measure up to what Jesus actually taught his disciples and expects of us.
