“And they said to Moses, ‘Why did you bring us out here to die in the wilderness? Weren’t there enough graves for us in Egypt? What have you done to us? Why did you make us leave Egypt?’”
I spent part of my childhood living with my grandparents. Sometimes we’d go to their cabin in Yucca Valley, which is in the desert, and it was freezing cold. This cabin didn’t have electricity or a bathroom, so we had to use an outhouse.
Today the thought of spending time in the desert isn’t all that appealing to me.
When the Israelites left Egypt, they weren’t excited about spending time in the desert, either. After God sent a series of plagues, Pharaoh finally agreed to release the Israelites. But as they made their way to a new land, they came to what looked like an insurmountable obstacle: The Red Sea.
