Today's Favorite Verse: Numbers 24:2, 7

Today's Favorite Verse: Numbers 24:2, 7
"And Balaam lifted up his eyes, and he saw Israel abiding in his tents according to their tribes; and the spirit of God came upon him.
He shall pour the water out of his buckets, and his seed shall be in many waters, and his king shall be higher than Agag, and his kingdom shall be exalted."

Balaam does not curse Israel as Balak had wanted. Instead he speaks the words given him by the spirit. He prophesied of the coming Messiah. In this verse of the water out of the bucket and seed in many waters, I thought about how the 12 tribes are scattered over the face of the earth. How mingled our DNA is with each other. Truly the seed of Israel is in many waters. One such group was Lehi and his family coming to the Americas.

Day 716
