Judges 3:28 – Judges 15:12

As the title suggests, today’s reading are all found in the book of Judges.  After Joshua’s death there was a period of history where a variety of judges (or leaders) led the Israelites.  The most famous of the judges in today’s reading include: Deborah (well-known for being a female leader), Gideon, and Samson.

I think my favorite passage in this section of scripture is Judges 6:15-16.  Here we find Gideon being called by God to be a Judge over Israel and lead them in battle. “But Lord,” Gideon asked, “how can I save Israel?  My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.”  The Lord answered, “I am with you…”  That’s awesome.  Isnt’ that just like God.  He always chooses the least likely person to be the leaders of His people.  In our weakness God is glorified.  That’s why he chose Gideon…that’s why he slimmed down Gideon’s army…that’s why He let’s you and I lead in His Kingdom work on earth….for His glory.
