Commentary: Israel has, once again, turned away from the Lord and worships idols. They thought only of what would please themselves. They lacked integrity and had become morally corrupt. God gave us free will, the ability to choose, and will not always stop us from making the wrong choice. Sometimes we may even experience success in our wrong choices. That does not mean that the choice was correct. God does not police our every action. In every wrong action, there is always a lesson to be learned.
Focus Verses: 20:41-21:1 This punishment is a direct result of what action? What happens when we think only of ourselves and our own pleasure instead of what pleases the Lord?
