Complaining Against Leaders

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Numbers 16 and 17 today.
Israel had a real bad problem during the wilderness wanderings of complaining about their leaders. Just after the Lord killed 250 men and their families for rebelling and complaining against Moses and Aaron, Israel complained to Moses and Aaron, “On the next day all the congregation of the children of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron, saying, ‘You have killed the people of the LORD'” (Numbers 16:41). Do you think it was a good idea to complain against two men who had the power to take the lives of 250 men and their families? Although the Lord was the One who did it, Israel credited Moses and Aaron, showing their failure to understand how the Lord worked, but they added to that sin by doing what the 250 had done.
Observe complainers carefully and you will discover that they do not learn from the mistakes of others, nor from their own mistakes. You are not one of those complainers; are you?
