“Your children will be shepherds here for forty years, suffering for your unfaithfulness, until the last of your bodies lies in the wilderness. For forty years—one year for each of the forty days you explored the land—you will suffer for your sins and know what it is like to have Me against you.’
– Numbers 14:33-34
How terrible it would be, Father, to have You against me! And let me never fall back into sin so that my selfish actions will never cause pain to someone else.
