The people all responded together,
’We will do everything the LORD has said.’
So Moses brought their answer back to the LORD.
Although subsequently, they failed to live up to their commitment, I believe God’s people were sincere in what they pledged to do, and I think Moses also believed their commitment as he reported the words of the people to the Lord.
There’s an obvious lesson here for us today. Are we, as individual Christians and collectively as his people, sincere in our commitment to our great God and Saviour? We all know that keeping a pledge is far more difficult than making it. Let us redouble our efforts to do everything the Lord has said, so that any report of our actions will to his glory.
