Today's Favorite Verse: Numbers 36:5
"And Moses command the children of Israel according to the word of the Lord, saying, The tribe of the sons of Joseph hath said well."
The land is being divided into inheritances and the brothers of Zelophehad, that had died without sons, is to have an inheritance given to his daughters. Now the chief families of this tribe come to Moses in concern that the daughters will marry outside of the tribe and the inheritance will be lost. Moses then inquires of the Lord on the matter. I love how the Lord tells them "The tribe of the sons of Joseph hath said well." I pondered on how needful it is, in supporting our leaders, to bring to mind things that concern us. It is often when we express our concerns that matters are taken to the Lord and council can be given. After the Lord has spoken then it is my place to be obedient.
"Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day." (Alma 37:37)
