Renungan harian alkitab, numbers 32, rabu ” flexibility with a purpose, flexibilitas dengan kejelasan tujuan”

Numbers 32:20-25 (NKJV)  Then Moses said to them: “If you do this thing, if you arm yourselves before the Lord for the war,

and all your armed men cross over the Jordan before the Lord until He has driven out His enemies from before Him,

and the land is subdued before the Lord, then afterward you may return and be blameless before the Lord and before Israel; and this land shall be your possession before the Lord.

But if you do not do so, then take note, you have sinned against the Lord; and be sure your sin will find you out.

Build cities for your little ones and folds for your sheep, and do what has proceeded out of your mouth.”

And the children of Gad and the children of Reuben spoke to Moses, saying: “Your servants will do as my lord commands.

Di dalam sikap penundukan diri suku Gad dan Reuben, mereka mengajukan permintaan untuk menetap di seberang sungai Jordan, dengan tetap memikul tanggung jawab berperang dan menjunjung asas keadilan atas umat yang lain.

Jika sikap hati, dan cara penyampaian benar, maka hasilnya Tuhan dan Moses memberikan restu , dengan juga mempertimbangkan asas keadilan.

Suku Gad dan Reuben terbukti menepati janji mereka, dan tetap setia pada Tuhan Allah israel, penundukan diri mereka sungguh murni dan bukan berpura-pura. keputusan Tuhan dan Moses memberikan permintaan mereka adalah benar adanya.

Para pembaca terkasih, sikap hati penundukan diri dengan kemurnian , tanggung jawab dan disertai asas keadilan , menghasilkan flexibilitas kebijakan  dari Tuhan.
