It's the end of an era, y'all. Moses climbed to the mountaintop, took a view of the Promised Land, and knew he wouldn't be the one to lead us there. If you're reading Deuteronomy with me, we had to say goodbye to the man who's been leading us since we left Egypt.
He led us through the wilderness and across great waters. He braved the roaring mountain for our sakes, and sometimes talked God into sparing our lives when we made mistakes. He communicated God's laws to us, and made sure we followed them to the letter...or else.
This is just a memorial. No one knows where Moses is buried.
He made sure we didn't die of hunger or thirst as we wandered around aimlessly. Because of him, God sent manna from above, and water from a rock. We whined and complained constantly, but Moses didn't give up on us.
He will be sorely missed, as any great leader would be. But now he has gone on to glory. It's the end of an era, and the beginning of another. We will be entering a new chapter tomorrow. Our lives must go on.
But before we go, let's give thanks to God for sending great leaders our way. Although they are great, we must always remember that God is greater. We must lean on Him, for He never dies.
*Join my one-year trip around the world of Scripture. You’re invited to take this journey with me, as I meditate on God’s Word day and night. Each morning, you’ll find a post on my Facebook page encouraging my new #Biblebuddies along the way. And each night, I’ll be writing my impressions right here at listen2leslie.com. I’d love it if you’d share your comments, to spark some fruitful discussion. The only passport you’ll need for this journey is the Read Scripture app which provides us with our daily itinerary. You’ll love this app because it contains videos by The Bible Project that serve as our tour guide. Traveling is so much better when you have someone to share the experience with, so please join me, will you?
