Today’s Israel Inspiration

Numbers chapter 31 describes the war waged by the children of Israel against the Midianites as retribution for the immorality and idolatry that resulted in the death of 24,000 Israelites. In preparation for war, Moses orders that an equal number of men from each tribe be chosen to fight. Similarly, at the conclusion of the battle, the spoils of war are to be divided equally among the entire congregation. The fact that each tribe is equally represented in battle and that everyone will be given a share in the spoils, highlights the unity of the congregation of Israel. Acting as one cohesive unit in the service of God demonstrates that the children of Israel are finally ready to enter the Land of Israel after a 40-year journey in the desert. The modern day Israeli army, the IDF, is likewise comprised of soldiers from different backgrounds and walks of life. IDF soldiers include native Israelis, Arab Israelis, and Jewish lone soldiers who have left their families to defend their ancestral homeland. Working together in the service of God and the people of Israel, these brave soldiers put their lives on the line every day in the defense of Israel and her citizens.
