” However, the sons of Korah did not die that day.” (Numbers 26:11)
I’m glad the sons of Korah didn’t die the day Korah and 250 of his followers were destroyed as a result of their rebellion for two major reasons:
1) Some of the most beautiful psalms recorded in the book of Psalms are attributed to the Sons of Korah. We would not have their testimony today if they had perished.
2) It’s a reminder that the sins of the father don’t have to transfer to his children. The cycle can be broken. That’s a longstanding testimony to God’s grace.
I know there are a few other reasons that I thought of while I was getting ready for church this morning. Of course, I didn’t take the time to write them down, figuring I’d be able to do it later on today. And…well…I forgot what I was going to say by the time I had an opportunity to record those thoughts. Maybe I’ll remember them later and re-visit this topic then.
Confession: I am catching up on my readings today. This is from Friday’s reading. Hopefully, I’ll be able to read Saturday’s and today’s today. That way I’ll be caught up. I hate getting behind.
