Deuteronomy 2:5 Do not meddle with them, for I will not give you any of their land, no, not so much as one footstep, because I have given Mount Seir to Esau as a possession.
And now, Admonition brought to you by the Collierville Church of Christ.
Deuteronomy chapter two verse five, Moses is rehearsing the events of Israel, leaving their wandering in the wilderness and beginning to head towards the promised land, and notice what he says as they're going through the land of their brethren, Esau. He says, Do not meddle with them. For I will not give you any of their land. No, not so much as one footstep. God is telling them, This doesn't belong to you. Just because God said you're my people. Just because God said, I've prepared a land for you. Just because God said I have an inheritance for you. Didn't mean they could do whatever they wanted to. Respect what belongs to others. Respect what doesn't belong to you. Don't meddle in other's affairs.
