Israel had been in slavery for decades, and were now given a huge task when freed. They had to prepare the way for the other Israelites. The first group would cast out branches and other obstacles. The second group would lay down the road. The third group would clean up the construction debris. This was all so that the last group could lift up the standard for the people. Many generations have gone before us to give us the Bible and the rights to own and read it.
In our generation, we’ve dropped the ball. Instead of helping, too often we hinder.
Instead of bickering, Christians need to make the path to Christ easier for others. Don’t be an obstacle to salvation. Gather up all bitterness, lying, and neglect, and throw them away. Our children should revere the Word of God because of our lives.
