After Ehud died, the people again did what the Lord said was wrong.
Judges 4:1 ERV
What on earth am I doing sitting under this palm tree? Has everyone gone off the deep end, or just the people talking to me?
Holy God, thank you for the blessing of faithful parents. This is such a mixed up mess, I don't know how I could possibly function without their foundation of trust in you.
So much for being first-born! Did Father have so little faith in me, think me so unattractive that he thought the only way I would get a husband would be to trick one into marrying me?
What's a girl to do? Is it my fault I was born beautiful? To hear my parents talk, you'd think it was a sin.
Enough was enough! I didn't choose gorgeous hair or skin like porcelain.
So, when the first good-looking guy came along with an invitation, I was outta there!
I know I've been blessed. It couldn't have been easy for Cousin Mordecai to muscle through his own grief when Mom and Dad died so he could raise me.
It's so much easier to be thankful for Cousin Mordecai's generous spirit, than focus on how much I miss my parents. Things could have gone in a whole different direction.
