The situation could not have been any more fortunate for the children of Israel. They were being delivered out slavery. They were on their way to a land that is described as overflowing with milk and honey, and yet all they could focus on was the temporary difficulties they were facing. Instead of embracing the journey, these people complained and grumbled about everything that wasn't perfect, and it led them to go so far as to desire to return to that place from which they had just been delivered. This lesson looks at the failures of Israel in their evil desires and concludes with a couple of points that we must remember if we don't want to fail in the same way they did in the wilderness.
