Every person has his detractors and Moses was no exception. You'd think all the signs and wonders God performed through him would have earned him a certain amount of respect among the people he led. I don't think some people would even be happy in heaven, but always complain and stir up dissension. Korah was a prime example of such a person, whose rebellion against God's leadership is well known. If you have not learned this yet, let me say it as plainly as possible.

I'm not certain which is worse, not having a godly man lead you or not being discerning enough to know the difference. But there's no doubt that You lead us - sometimes in spite of those who claim to represent You. May I never forget, it's You I follow, even when it's a man leading me.
