Again the Israelites did evil in the LORD’s sight.” (Judges‬ ‭10‬:‭6‬ NLT)

Giuseppe Garibaldi was born to be a rebel. His résumé sounds almost too fantastic to believe:
*A failed insurrection against the Italian President, 1834.
*Rebellion in both Brazil and Uruguay, 1840s.
*Round 2 in Italy, 1848.
*Overtook Sicily, 1860.
(He even offered to help President Lincoln win the Civil War in 1861, but was prudently denied!)

In the Old Testament, it seems like every time Israel got their act together, they’d fall off the wagon again. Doesn’t sound too far from our own stories, does it? There is this thing in us that refuses to allow us to be obedient to God at all times, like rebellion is bred inside our DNA. But that sin nature must be conquered. Left unchecked, it will destroy everything in your life!

Stubbornness and rebellion is a hard way to live. Choose instead to do right. As the Bible tells us, “Those that live by the sword will die by the sword” (Matt. 26:52). Live right so that you have nothing to regret and makes people talk! You are loved today!
