Real Motives

Joshua 22-24

Joshua‬ ‭22‬:‭32‬ ‭NLT‬‬ says, “Then Phinehas son of Eleazar, the priest, and the other leaders left the tribes of Reuben and Gad in Gilead and returned to the land of Canaan to tell the Israelites what had happened.” Why? Because they had talked to the tribes of Reuben and Gad instead of striking out in anger first, realized their assumptions had been wrong.

“Phinehas son of Eleazar, the priest, replied to them, ‘Today we know the Lord is among us because you have not committed this treachery against the Lord as we thought. Instead, you have rescued Israel from being destroyed by the hand of the Lord.’” Joshua‬ ‭22‬:‭31‬ ‭NLT‬‬ Sometimes all it takes is kindly asking questions to see the real picture and motive in someone else’s heart.
