View From Purcell, Oklahoma: Daily Devotional: When It's OK to Say "No" (1/3/12)

Daily Devotional: When It's OK to Say "No" (1/3/12)

Numbers 11:12: Did I conceive all this people? Did I give them birth, that you should say to me, 'Carry them in your bosom, as a nurse carries a nursing child,' to the land that you swore to give their fathers? (ESV)

Numbers 11:12: Did I conceive all these people? Did I give birth to them, that you would say to me, "Carry them at the breast, as a nurse carries an unweaned child," to the fertile land that you promised their ancestors? (CEB)

Prayer Starter: God, sometimes it's hard for me to slow down and say no to more responsibility. Help me to live with the balance of responsibility You created for me, so I can live with Your peace and enjoy life

There is not a lot of difference between the ESV and the CEB in this text, but sometimes it is mych easier for me to understand the CEB (Common English Bible)

It is OK to say no.  One of the hardest words to utter yet one of the most freeing.
