Today you should read: Numbers 16
Korah was from the lineage of Levi and the first cousin of Moses and Aaron. In this chapter, we see how he raised up men to accuse Moses and Aaron of wrongdoing when they were innocent. Moses was told to separate from Korah and his people for He would pour out his judgment on him and what judgment it was. We’re talking about the earth swallowing them up. Have you ever seen those sinkhole videos on youtube? Imagine that happening with people and families and their belongings. But Moses troubles didn’t end there for now his own people accused Moses of killing them and grumbled against him. A plague was given to Moses’ people unless they listened to Moses’ instructions for atonement.
Let us not make the same sinful mistakes in falsely accusing people or grumbling against others. Such sins are still worthy of death, which Jesus fulfilled Himself through His own atonement on the cross. However, Christians can be worse when grumbling or accusing people of something before having all of the facts or details. There’s a great grace for such ignorance or malicious intent but it comes with a great cost.
