But God's anger was kindled because he went, and the angel of the Lord took his stand in the way as his adversary. Now he was riding on the donkey, and his two servants were with him. 23And the donkey saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road, with a drawn sword in his hand. And the donkey turned aside out of the road and went into the field. And Balaam struck the donkey, to turn her into the road.
The story of Balaam is the story of rationalization. As more and more money is offered he delays, procrastinates, prays selfish prayers, and then ultimately takes the deal of self-deception. With his mouth he gives eloquent descriptions of the God of Israel and yet with his life he can't fully grasp anything but a self-seeking existence. When we hold Balaam up to ourselves the image is not very pretty. Join us as we attempt to pull the wool off of our eyes that we ourselves placed there. We can't wait to worship and celebrate Christ with you!
