When I was really honest with myself this summer I realized that I have always looked at Gideon, one of the Judges (or leaders) of the Israelites in the Old Testament as a bit of a “loser.” He was the example of what “not to do.” I mean, I could do better – I could be better than that guy, right?
But what if Gideon is included in the Bible not as an example of what not to do? What if he is somehow a model?...
And what if Gideon isn’t the point of the passages at all?
What if instead of focusing on Gideon’s weaknesses, I turned around and looked at…
Gideon’s Great God???
Well, when I started doing that, things got interesting.
Tune in next time to journey with me through Judges 6 & 7.
