Under Gods Command

Read Judges 19:1-21:25 (A Levite and His Concubine)

What is the significance of this tragic story?  When the Israelites’ faith in God disintegrated, their unity as a nation also disintegrated.  They could have taken complete possession of the land if they had obeyed God and trusted him to keep his promise.  But when they forgot him, they lost heir purpose, and soon “everyone did as he saw fit”.    When they stopped letting God lead them, they became no better than the evil people around.  When they made laws for their own benefit, they set standards far below God’s.  When you leave God out of your life you may be shocked at what you are capable of doing.
