Reading

"The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them." - Mark Twain Persons that do not want to be educated and learn how to read, is like a fish in water without fins.

It wasn’t that they had arrived where they wanted it be, it was they couldn’t move because of the disobedience of a couple of its people.

Aaron was Moses’ right hand man; Miriam was his sister. With Moses out of earshot, they began trashing him because they didn’t approve of his wife—she was a Cushite, and they didn’t like her. I suppose it is a sister’s prerogative not to like her sister-in-law, I mean Miriam wouldn’t be the first person to disapprove of a brother’s choice in a bride. But Miriam and Aaron went too far, they asked a couple of questions they shouldn’t have asked, “Has the Lord indeed spoken only through Moses? Has He not spoken through us as well?…
