But the very next morning the whole community of Israel began muttering again against Moses and Aaron, saying, “You have killed the Lord’s people!” Numbers 16:41 NLT
The next morning, the people started griping again. WHAT????
They SAW what happened to Korah, Dathan, and Abiram and their families and followers with their families, along with all their belongings. Most of them were literally swallowed up by the earth — it cracked OPEN, they FELL in, then it CLOSED over them!!!! Then fire came down and WHOOSH! the false priests were made into coals.
The people went to bed that night and got up the next morning speaking the SAME COMPLAINTS!
Well, I would never do that!
Except… I do.
There are times I see God act in judgment. I’m not hurt. I’m just a spectator. But then, in a flash, I’m muttering the same words that brought that judgment on those people. D’oh! How crazy is that?
Almighty God, reveal to me the complaints in my heart that are in any way against You, that I may repent and be cleansed of them.
