A Gift and a Plague

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Leviticus 14 today.
God gives and He gives again, but not always as we expect or want. For example, He told the Israelites, “When you have come into the land of Canaan, which I give you as a possession, and I put the leprous plague in a house in the land of your possession” (Leviticus 14:34), and He went on to say what they were to do.
It is interesting that He said that He gave them the land of Canaan as a possession, but while there He would also give a leprous plague. Now here is the thing. Would Israel still follow the Lord, obeying His commandments, when they received the bad along with the good? You know something that is a good question for us. Ask yourself today whether you will still follow the Lord, even when things do not turn out as you wish.
