     “Ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.” 
         — Galatians 3:26

The fatherhood of God is common to all his children. Ah! Little-faith, you have often said, “Oh that I had the courage of Great-heart, that I could wield his sword and be as valiant as he! But, alas, I stumble at every straw, and a shadow makes me afraid.” List thee, Little-faith.

There is no food and no water, and our hearts detest this miserable food’ ” (Num. 21:5). Then, Yahweh sends poisonous snakes that bite the people, causing them to die (Num.21:6). Why would a good God do such a horrific thing?
In Numbers 21:1–4, the people had experienced a miraculous victory against the Canaanites living in Arad—a people they were losing to, and should have lost to, until Yah…
