Aaron the Peacemaker

One traditional teaching about Aaron says that when husbands and wives quarreled, they would seek out Aaron. He would counsel them with words of peace and bring reconciliation to their relationship. He was so adept at making peace between husbands and wives that he had many children named after him.

Who is the Boss?

Though Dathan and Abiram accused Moses of arrogance, he was actually the most humble man on earth. It was not that Moses had poor self-esteem; he simply had an accurate assessment of his own worth before God.

A Different Spirit

There is nothing special about having a realist-attitude. Anyone can point out problems. Everyone can criticize. It takes no talent to be a naysayer. Such a person is usually not very realistic at all. Instead a person like that demonstrates a marked tendency to emphasize the negative, ignore the positive and disregard miracles.

The Puzzling Story of Miriam's Leprosy

How many times do we indulge in similar "private" conversations, forgetting that God is listening?

(Matthew 12:36)
