I was outside this morning picking up sticks and cutting wood I let “dry” over the winter. It got me to thinking...
32 Now while the children of Israel were in the wilderness, they found a man gathering sticks on the Sabbath day. 33 And those who found him gathering sticks brought him to Moses and Aaron, and to all the congregation. 34 They put him under guard, because it had not been explained what should be done to him. (NOTE: love this little “surprise” for the guy)
35 Then the Lord said to Moses, “The man must surely be put to death; all the congregation shall stone him with stones outside the camp.” 36 So, as the Lord commanded Moses, all the congregation brought him outside the camp and stoned him with stones, and he died.
Carry a stick as part of your equipment, so that when you have a bowel movement you can dig a hole and cover it up. (to be fair some translations say spade [digging instrument])
Roughly 2.5 million Israelites wandering the desert. That’s a butt load of sticks!!!! No wonder the above guy was out when no one else was, gathering sticks (he’s the equivalent of a toilet paper hoarder)...
Not as though there’s any evidence of the wilderness 40 yr hike, but, fuck that’s funny!
