God promised the children of Israel a land flowing with milk and honey as they wandered in the wilderness for decades. And just as they were on the cusp of crossing over into it, a group rose up and asked to stay in nearby cities east of the Jordan because the land was beneficial for their flocks. Instead of moving into their Promised Land, they opted for ease and peace in the border land. What they saw was enough for them rather than the unknown goodness that God had assured. In this episode, we'll look at how opting for easy can point to the fact that you are serving a safe God you created.
