On October 20, 1974, a boxing match took place in Kinshasa, Zaire, between George Foreman, the undefeated world heavyweight champion, and challenger Muhammad Ali. Sixty thousand people attended the historic event, dubbed “The Rumble in the Jungle.” 


Centuries earlier, “The Grumble in the Jungle” took place before the God of Israel, starting in a place called Taberah, which means “burning” (Numbers 11:1-3). Not only did the Lord’s anger burn because Israel complained, but God literally lit their camp on fire. Do you blame Him? There is nothing worse than the nagging complaint of ungrateful people. 


Has an unholy complaint arisen in your spirit against God or one of His shepherds? Before God lights your camp on fire, stop the grumbling.

As both Ken and I continue to daily catch up on the Route 66 series and again on the daily blog... we always smile when you quote stanzas of an old hymn.. it touches our hearts, possibly due to our age and our backgrounds... but it's SPECIAL to reflect back on the meanings and hearts of those songwriters.. It's sad that we don't hear more of them on our Sunday mornings.. Thanks again for all you do and the blessings you bring to these "older" folk. Dianne & Ken Stephens.. See you in the spring
