For The Wrong Reasons
Lest we immediately jump up and down and proclaim how ludicrous this is, we must also recognize that we actually fall into similar traps. As humans, we are drawn to certain people because of their physical appearance or prowess. We use the word attractive when speaking of handsome individuals, because we are attracted to them. Just this morning I read a report that the lower pitched the voice is of a CEO, the more money they make! Seems crazy, but somehow we associate power with a tall, handsome man with a deep voice. Just because someone has those physical traits doesn’t mean that they are a great leader. The Israelites were ready to make a decision based on all the wrong reasons and as a result, they missed out on much that God had to offer them.
