One of these sames fables is a fatalnowAAll, and the dog gets this very scrunpturous bone from town and he'shit hom and as he's on his way home. He comes to a creek and he's crossing Ta Bridge of theCreek and he looks down and he sees another nol and the creek with a lone woa's, bigger than Hisbon Ando Onlin the bone. That's the otherdog aid. He drops his scrupters bone...

...and gop down into the creek to grab theother row. A pon when hits face hits the WaterDono as we realizes it was his reflection. He dropped what he had to get somethingthat didn't exist. Such is the case. We're not grateful for what we have. We want something else. We desiresomething more instead of being grateful for what we have. We complain.One Ang more such the ISRELITEDT were continuing ourstudyg through the book of numbersand numbers Chapter, eleven and Tweve, withour waiting for it today, Wis sequail from having opposition to Moses, butI'm going to read numbers Chapter Eleven Er Eighteenis. We see this sadstory of discontentment the lives of...

...the children of Israel. Tell the people consecrate yourselvesin preparation for tomorrow, YOUW'LL EAT me. The Lord heard you when youwill only we had meat to eat. We were metteroff in Egypt now. The Lord will give you me and you willing numbers chapters. Eleven and twelvediscontentment flows through the camp of Israel like a flooding riversweeping across as its was of destruction, crashed into the lives ofthe inhabitants, rinking hat throughout the entire cab. In these chapters we see the chilre ofEsro Gitconti about a lack of meat to eat chapter eleven versus Forv, even though they have been eating AngelFood Matta from haven.

Fur mosus is discontete about the CHILNobifr being discontet chapter eleven versus eleven, though fourteen andfinally aarin and Miriam are discontenned with their positions ofleadership, and they won't Mosees is position of leadership. Chapter twelvone to in the midst of all this complaint. In the midst of thisdiscontentent, God calls on the childer of Israel tosanctify themselves. That's all. There was all this distant heme flowingthrough the lives of the children of Isral falling through the cap of thechildren of Isral, and God says I wan all to sintify yourself. They are discontete than he calls onthem to santify themself wel. What type of instruction is this...

...making o mistake? God was also lettingthem see the combination of their his contenment and he gave them meat untilthey were sick of I, but the Samtifi was a remin. One need only remember Israel's historyto understand God's Actionsgod was calling on them to remember to who they remember whos. They were the first time they satified themselves,Wasat the Passir back in agent when God said to them you'R, mind not mone than Passo, but as a testimonythat you're mine, you'll, kill, aout you'll sprinkle its blood over theentrance of your hals...

Ouma therefere, Semtivi Yousathat was, whenGod called him to sanctify themselves or reminded that they were gods thatthey had been bought with the price. This reminder of to whom they belong, was an impetus.They needed to recall the blessons God agiven, the recollection of their salvation ofGod's goodness of God's blessigs. That's the best them to stop the floodof discontempt. If they would stop and recall, God'sgoodness, and they would realize they had noreasons to be discontented, if they wo ul, Stop and count their many blessents.

It would surprise him what God oseewhat God was doing, Salis you're discontinued. So I want you tosentify yourselves, O Sacifi, Oh yeah, that's what we did when we became God when the passal Roer, when there wasthis clear delineation between us and others. We Bon him and he saved usthrough that and he's blest us through that and he's provided for us and what God was doing was he wasbringing to mine whose they were and how he inen faithful to take care of you, and I are also tempted to becomediscontinu. We 're attempted to look at what sooneelse has were atempted to Wolt. Something else were atempted to desiresomething else,...

...and God is teaching us even today,vacant Ihave provided you with Saation I'Sayed. You I've taken care of you. I Condi thankyour I reminder of what God had when we become discontent. It would dous well to remember our savations wit to remember how much nod loves Tus. I think that we don't Giv what wedeserve in doing so we take our thoughts offwhat we don't have and suddenly we enjoy an accurate perspective of anundeserved, savation, Amoni God who died for us and the eternity that wasgiven to us by grace gods complaining he hates discontent, because in so doing we usually questionGod. Have you been good to o...

...a fresh look at our sevation? Remindsus of God's Goodess, I'm not going to drop the internal LonOfgori for a marage, which only appears to be what I desire it's praising today for Salevation, ofwhich we are still inall. Let's take our eyes of what we desire yet donotoset and place our eyes on what we pissess, which is more desire than anything else. The OI tegod, a free, tegot, all ht, a great message encouraging us tobe content with what God is given encouraging us. Coucher many blessings,name them one by one and an well surprise.
