A couple who stopped to admire a large abstract painting noticed open paint cans and brushes underneath it. Assuming it was a “work in progress” that anyone could help create, they stroked in some color and left. The artist, though, had purposefully left the supplies there as part of the finished work’s display. After reviewing video footage of the incident, the gallery acknowledged the misunderstanding and didn’t press charges.

The Israelites who lived east of the Jordan created a misunderstanding when they built a massive altar next to the river. The western tribes viewed this as rebellion against God—everyone knew the tabernacle was the only God-approved place for worship (Joshua 22:16).

Tensions mounted until the eastern tribes explained that they only meant to make a replica of God’s altar. They wanted their descendants to see it and recognize their spiritual and ancestral connection with the rest of Israel (vv. 28–29). They exclaimed: “The Mighty One, God, the Lord! He knows!” (v. 22). Thankfully, the others listened. They saw what was going on, praised God, and returned home.

Because God “searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought” (1 Chronicles 28:9) everyone’s motives are clear to Him. If we ask Him to help us sort out confusing situations, He may give us the chance to explain ourselves or the grace we need to forgive offenses. We can turn to Him when we’re striving for unity with others.

Hi friends and thanks for joining us for today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread. It was written by Jennifer Benson Schultz and she titled it. God knows a couple who stop to admire a large abstract painting noticed open paint cans and brushes underneath it. Assuming it was a work in progress that anyone can help create a stroke and some color and left the artist, though, had purposefully left the supplies there as part of the finished works display.

After reviewing video footage of the incident. The gallery acknowledge the misunderstanding and didn't press charges. The Israelites who lived east of the Jordan created a misunderstanding when they built a massive altar next to the river. The Western tribes viewed this as rebellion against God. Everyone knew the tabernacle was the only got approved place for worship. Tensions mounted until the Eastern tribes explained that they only meant to make a replica of God's altar, they wanted their descendents to see and recognize their spiritual and ancestral connection with the rest of Israel exclaimed in Joshua 22, the mighty one God, the Lord, he knows. Thankfully the others listened they saw what was going on and praised God and return home because God searches every heart and understands every desire and every thought everyone's motives are clear to him. If we ask him to help us sort out confusing situations.

He may give us the chance to explain ourselves for the grace we need to forgive offensive, we can turn to him when we are striving for unity others. Today Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Joshua chapter 22 verses 21 through 27 then Ruben dad and the half tribe of Manasseh replied to the heads of the clans of Israel, the mighty one God, the Lord, the mighty one God, the Lord, he knows and let Israel know if this has been in rebellion, or disobedience to the Lord. Do not spare us this day.

If we have built our own altar to turn away from the Lord and to offer burnt offerings and grain offerings or to sacrifice fellowship offerings on it. May the Lord himself.

Call us to account know we did it for fear that someday your descendents might save hours what you have to do with the Lord, the God of Israel, the Lord has made the Jordan, a boundary between us and you you Ruben nights and guides you have no share in the Lord.

So your descendents might cause hours to stop fearing the Lord. That is why we said let us get ready and build an altar, but not for burnt offerings or sacrifices. On the contrary, it is to be a witness between us and you and the generations that follow that we will worship the Lord's sanctuary are burnt offering sacrifices and fellowship offerings.

Then in the future. Your descendents will not be able to save hours have no share in the Lord. Let's pray father let our greatest desire be to honor you, help us to be attentive listeners and humble speakers when disagreements and misunderstandings occur. Thank you, Lord. It's in Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Thanks for listening today. My name is Alisa Reisinger and today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
