He Judged Israel

Read the Bible in a year by reading Judges 12-14 today.
God had much to say about some of the judges, but others of the judges, He did not say much at all. Here is all that He said about Elon, “After him, Elon the Zebulunite judged Israel. He judged Israel ten years. And Elon the Zebulunite died and was buried at Aijalon in the country of Zebulun (Judges 12:11, 12). That is not much in comparison to Deborah, Gideon, Samson, or Jephthah. Yet, it is more than what is said about you and me! What is the reason for Elon’s rising? From what enemy did he deliver Israel? What were his spectacular feats? We cannot answer those questions and many others, but we do know that God knows, and that is all that matters.
I do not know the circumstances of your life and the good that you have done, and vice versa, but God knows, and when we stand before Him at the Judgment that is all that will matter.
