I read in Judges today.

I am still reading through the Old Testament in hopes that I will finish the Bible this year. It will be easy to finish. I lack 3 Books of the Bible in the Old Testament. This is not a chore. It is refreshing to sit down to read. Judges is interesting, and I read about the birth of Samson today. I will read on about his life.

Things happen and Israel goes into bondage. Then they cry out to the Lord, and He saves them when they are in battle. Their enemies are defeated right, and left. They slip from Him, and won’t listen, and they get into defeat, and troubles again. They are like we are. Their stubbornness keeps them from seeking the Lord with all their hearts. They have His respect until they turn away from Him. Idolatry, and other sins always get in the way of walking close with the Lord.

I will read on to finish Judges. I am on chapter 15 next. It is an interesting book, because the leaders change after a time. Some reign for many years, and some don’t make it long.
