Today’s readings Numbers 30-31

Numbers 30:16 These are the statutes, which the LORD commanded Moses, between a man and his wife, between the father and his daughter, being yet in her youth in her father’s house.

God gave instructions to the Jewish people about vows or promises that they made. It was for the daughter who still lived in her father’s house. As the dad, he was responsible to approve of decisions made by his wife and daughter.

God gave clear instructions. He clearly gave them to a certain people for a certain time. There is an application to us today, of course. But be careful to notice who this was said to, when it was said, and the instructions in how it was said!
