Genealogies in the Bible are tedious to read; so also the lists of the boundaries of the tribes and their cities. Don’t lose the forest for the trees! While a map will help you visualize these territories, there is something obvious: a wandering people finally have a place to settle down. Identify with this in your own life.
Lands and relationships both need boundaries. The arms of the crucified, risen Lord gather others into a primary community—a spiritual land of faith, hope, and love called God’s Kingdom.
Take care that you do not cross the borders of your faith by simply not believing.
Settling down in Your Kingdom
Embraced by the Crucified
Discerning my place in life
All my heart, a space for You
