Numbers 12:1”And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman.

As I watch sisters and brothers (from same family) at our ABIDE ANGEL HOME - a free boarding and Home for the poor and under privileged children - cuddle each other in sleep, so much so, I would not be able to find their heads or legs at times, they would be so entangled and I would wonder, ‘I wish this cuddling lasts forever!’  How could siblings born under the same roof get so far apart in heart (not all though) as they grow older?  I remember one lady tell me, ‘my brother lives in the same building of our apartment but I have not talked to him for several years, neither has my mother talked to him as well.’  These two ladies have allowed bitter roots to grow deep! Did not the Bible warn us, Hebrews 12:5”See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.”

I’m going to talk about Miriam today, she is from no ordinary family but the daughter of Amram and Jochebed  who are of the tribe of Levi, the bold, shrewd sister of Moses and Aaron, the prophetess and  also the loving ‘big sis’ who stood at the Nile river, by the basket that carried Moses. She lived in turbulent times when king Pharaoh commanded to cast away every Hebrew boy baby born into the Nile.  (Exodus 1:22) How could such a nice woman become bitter, angry, jealous at her own little brother Moses??


This is what JEALOSY AND BITTERNESS WOULD DO TO A PERSON, caveat!  Immediately after you read this message, reconcile with people you envy, fast and pray to God to deliver you from bitterness.  None of us can puff out our chest and say ‘I never envy anybody’, this feeling creeps subtly when your neighbor buys a swanky car, when your friend gets married to a handsome man, when your colleague gets an award, when your friend’s kid gets top ranking etc.  The moment you notice the ‘ugly head’ of the devil in the form of envy jut out , be quick to smash it to nothing. Don’t allow bitter roots to grow, forgive and move. Hallelujah!
