God Unchanging/ Unchangeable
Today’s reading: Numbers 22:1-24:14
Balaam was an enigmatic character. He seems to have had some kind of relationship to Yahweh, the God of Israel. He was hired by Balak to bring down a curse upon Israel from their God. He refused to comply, not because he didn’t want to do it but, because God hindered his devious scheme. The story didn’t end there. More on Balaam tomorrow.
