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.

    This can be difficult for some many of us because we fight within ourselves with pride, and human nature.
    We all need to work on letting go of selfish pride and work toward humility and repentance before God our Father to overlook the shortcomings of ourselves and others.

    With this humility comes the additude of forgiveness even though the other person may not want it. There is inner pain involved and like Elton John’s song says “Sorry seems to be the hardest word.”

    The more we strive for truth and a truthfully sorry; the more offenses can be healed or at least some peace be brought between family, friends and aquaintances.

    Time of silence, prayer and humility. Time to thank God for what we have and the teachings we have received!
    Thank you, messengers of the Word!!!
