    Gideon’s asking for a sign has nothing to do with determining God’s will—God already clearly told Gideon what to do. Gideon’s fleece shows his doubt and fear and lack of trust. Gideon didn’t know his own strength.

    “Putting out a Fleece” (Gideon) Pastor Bob Leroe, Cliftondale Congregational Church, Saugus, Massachusetts “Actions have consequences.” This could be the motto of our times, and it certainly would apply to the period of the Judges. In both cases we see people living lawlessly, doing whatever ...read more

    At the time of the Judges, Israel was out of control and accountable to no one. When God’s revelation is rejected, when we try to live independent of God, things that were once regarded as abominable and appalling are accepted as commonplace.
