"In the darkness of night, I wait expectantly for understanding and knowledge for your people."
Rooted Grounded Fixed and Founded in the Love of God
God is a God of Righteousness and
Righteous Order. They received because they had a right to ask (for
their inheritance), they were right in their request (it was theirs
to ask for, since there was no heir) and lastly they were right to
receive (hence God told Moses to allow it).
Imagine if they had not
worked the land and did what they were supposed to do. Then the
request wouldn’t have been right and neither would it have been to
right to receive.
There is a saying on the streets that “you have to work what you got to get what you want”. That applies here and
everywhere; it just has to be done righteously.
