That Which He Had
It was Moses whom God chose to lead the Israelite people out of Egyptian bondage and through whom He gave law unto His people. God chose Moses’ brother, Aaron, to be the first high priest of Israel. Ironically, though they held the highest mortal offices among God’s people, they were denied entrance into the land of promise for their failure to sanctify God at the waters of Meribah. Their failure was not because God chose the wrong people for the job, but because neither lived up to the
potential which God knew them to have. In the parable of the talents at the Twenty-Fifth of Matthew, he who failed to live up to his God-given potential had taken away from him even that which he had.
