Inheritance, Joshua and Sabbaths: Numbers 27–29

Numbers 27:15-17 Moses said to the Lord, ‘May the Lord, the God who gives breath to all living things, appoint someone over this community to go out and come in before them, one who will lead them out and bring them in, so that the Lord’s people will not be like sheep without a shepherd.’

What a humble response. No tantrums or pleading with God about ‘rights’ and ‘I want’; Moses knew that God owns it all anyway, and he accepted his time was nearly over.
