THORNS and THISTLES

March 29, 2016

Numbers 33:55

 

But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you, then it shall come about that those whom you let remain of them will become as pricks in your eyes and as thorns in your sides, and they will trouble you in the land in which you live.

 

 

LESSON

 

God warned the Israelites what would happen to them if they were not completely obedient. The Canaanites would be a constant source of irritation to them (“pricks” and “thorns”), and God would deal with His people as He planned to deal with the Canaanites.

Just as the Israelites were hesitant to clear out all the wicked people, it is easy for us to be hesitant to clear out all the sin that may be in our lives. If we do not drive sin out, sin will drive us out; if we be not the death of our lusts, our lusts will be the death of our souls.
