Sometimes Scripture’s silence speaks loudly. Tola and Jair, who judged Israel for forty-five years, set righteous examples and pleased God. Scripture says little about the days of their judging, implying that Israel lived peaceful and blessed lives during that time. Sadly, after they died, Israel returned to their evil ways and followed other gods. They again ignored God’s warnings of impending danger. Please open your Bible to Judges, chapter ten, as we listen to Pastor Ray Viola remind us and warn us of what God desires from us today.
