Word for the World – April 6

Word for the World devotionals from Dr. Randy White

 

The Graves of Greediness

So the name of that place was called Kibroth-hattaavah, because there they buried the people who had been greedy.” (Numbers 11:34, NASB95)

When the Israelites were blessed with Manna from heaven, they were not satisfied.  Complaining to Moses until God sent quail, they became experts at making the wilderness a cathedral of whinning.  When God sent quail, He also sent a plague, and many of the Israelites died from the plague, and were buried at Kibroth-hattaavah.

I don’t imagine that many of you speak Hebrew on a day-to-day basis, but perhaps Kibroth-hattaavah is a phrase you should remember.  It means, “The graves of greediness.”  You can use the phrase everytime you see the greed that James says leads to quarrels and murder.  When greed rears its ugly green-eyed head, say in Hebrew, Kibroth-hattaavah, and run for your life!  The seed of envy has led to the graves of greediness time and time again.

Is there any greed in your life?  You will spot it by the lack of contentment in the blessings God has given. When God gives you Manna, you will long for meat.  You will earn, but never enough. You will achieve, but never be satisfied.  This always-a-little-too-short dilemma is caused by greed that wants always a little more.  And when you see It in your life, beware, for the graves of greediness are never far behind.

In His Grace;

Dr. Randy White
