Some men could not eat the Passover because they had been defiled by a dead body, and they wanted to know why they were being kept from eating the Passover. Watch what Moses did,

And Moses said to them, “Stand still, that I may hear what the LORD will command concerning you” (Numbers 9.8). 

Even the great Moses did not know what to do, and rather than speculate, he turned to the Lord, since it was His law. May we likewise seek the Lord’s counsel when we do not know what to do, especially in regard to something that the Scriptures say.

Questions:

  • Do you consult the Lord?
  • Do you know how to look for something in the Scriptures to solve your problem?
