Good day everyone Moses and God had a discussion in this chapter whereas the Lord was tired of the rebellion the children of Israel was displaying. Moses talked God out of striking them with a plague letting God know people all around was looking for His Glory to come concerning the promise on the children of Israel. But what does it feel like to God when we continue in our error thinking producing after our kind? Something to think about when the bible says He feels our infirmities. The other thing is when you have had children for centuries living in faulty patterns of life and your trying to break the cycle but they will not comply. Well we would feel some kind of way like God wanting to knock our kids down too. Numbers 14:17-18 says,”Now may the Lord’s strength be displayed, just as you have declared: 18 ‘The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generations. This scripture reminds us that the discord we create is not only affecting us, but it affects our generations to come throughout the world. Some of our parents had and have no knowledge concerning the records recorded in wrong or right over our lives, but here today heaven records our understanding that this day is created in honor of Gods seeds barring Godly fruit forever more! No more fruit from the trees of iniquity. We are spirit filled accountable for the actions we take and what we create. In Jesus name

When I volunteered at Scott Alternative School the year before they closed it to outsource the program there was a young man in the class who did things for shock value. Regardless of how you spoke to him about his behavior the next hour or the next day he would do something just as or even more outrageous just to see your reaction. After his father had been called numerous times about the his acting out, his father decided that he needed to follow through with his threats.
One morning after the young boy was dropped off to school (he always came dressed and pressed) his father came to the school and marched him to the restroom. He made him take off his nicely pressed really good looking uniform and put on a pair of pants that were too short, a shirt that wasn’t ironed and a very old pair of sneakers. To add insult to injury he would not let him put on a belt instead the father taped his shirt inside his pants with silver tape and dared him to change anything about the way he was dressed until the end of the school day.
Now I can hear some of you out there saying that this is cruel and inhuman punishment. But this is why young people have very little respect for authority figures (parents) we make vail threats and reward bad behavior. Why would you give a party to someone coming home from jail? What have they done to deserve a celebration? Celebrate a graduation, the receiving of a scholarship, being excepted at any college, going into the military or going away to follow your dream. Everyone make mistakes, we just don’t have to celebrate them. Just saying. And I know I will get a lot of “and who are you to say this”. I am a mother.
Penney for your thoughts…
