They said, "Why, O God, God of Israel, has this happened? Why do we find ourselves today missing one whole tribe from Israel?"
yes, God, no matter how important a victory may seem, no matter how great our point may be, our relationships are way more important. may we never deem what we have to say higher than our brother. may we choose everything in wisdom and love just as you did. in all things may we choose you, may we choose to walk how you would in all our circumstances and situations, may we do as you do and love in all things. thank you that we get to love you and love people, your wisdom is available to us, and you always speak from within us. thank you, holy spirit, for teaching us what to say, what to do, who we are. how could we ever be without you?
