Reflections for March 15, 2015

Numbers 21:4–9

We can probably identify with the Israelites in the desert as they faced moments of despair, surrounded by a dangerous wilderness. They don’t like the food. They become impatient with God and with Moses. Biting serpents get their attention, and they are encouraged to confront their fears – their impatience and inner despair – by looking at a bronze serpent on a stick to heal their wounds. Trusting God helps them through this difficult time. What healing might come if we trust in God’s presence and face our inner fears this Lent?

 

This week, look for an opportunity to help someone going through a difficult time or personal wilderness. How might you encourage them or help them along their journey?
