Bible verse of the day #36


God doesn’t like people who complain, but instead of just smiting them, he has a less deadly idea in mind. Numbers 11:18

“And tell the people to purify themselves, for tomorrow they will have meat to eat. Tell them, ‘The LORD has heard your whining and complaints: “If only we had meat to eat! Surely we were better off in Egypt!” Now the LORD will give you meat, and you will have to eat it. And it won’t be for just a day or two, or for five or ten or even twenty. You will eat it for a whole month until you gag and are sick of it. For you have rejected the LORD, who is here among you, and you have complained to him, “Why did we ever leave Egypt?”

Although God isn’t smiting anyone in this verse, eating only meat for a month is definitely not going to be good for you. A lack of vitamin C would cause scurvy, and meat lacks many of the vitamins and minerals that you need to survive. You can survive on a meat-only diet for about a year, but there are some side effects. (Source)
