1 Chronicles 12 has a list of the troops David was able to muster. In the midst of this list of men with swords, shields, and spears is this:
32 Of Issachar, men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do, 200 chiefs, and all their kinsmen under their command.
As you say, Terry, keep our eyes on the task God has given us to do (Matt. 28:18-20), but it is also worthwhile being aware of the times.
Thanks again, Terry.
This thread is a blessing to me.
