Do Not Discourage Your Brethren

While Moses was wrong for assuming two and a half tribes would not fight with their brethren to conquer the Land of Canaan, he was right about how not fighting would have discouraged their brethren, “Now why will you discourage the heart of the children of Israel from going over into the land which the LORD has given them?” (Numbers 32:7).
Why should the other tribes fight, if the two and a half tribes will not fight?
Look to yourself. Are you an encourager or a discourager by whether you do anything in the church?
