Miriam was deeply concerned about her little brother and never lost her love for him. Moses became the special leader God chose to set Israel free.

In a moment of weakness, Miriam confronted Moses as he was leading Israel. She felt that God could use her too. That confrontation angered God, and Miriam suddenly turned as white as snow and was a leper (Numbers 12:9-10 Numbers 12:9-10 9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and he departed. 10 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked on Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous.
American King James Version×
). All of Israel waited for seven days while Miriam went through her punishment from God. Moses also cared for his sister as she cared for him. Debts of gratitude come in different ways and different size packages. Overlook the weakness and focus on that for which we can be thankful. Life is often a two-way street.
