Abimelech, son of Gideon, had imposed himself over the people after his father’s death. He slew his other 70 brothers with the sword so he could rule as king.
By this time sin had come to another level and the LORD was very displeased. For the 1st time Israel fought against itself in the promised land, all because of the selfish desires of one man, Abimelech.
After his miserable death, there arose a man we’ve heard very little of called Tola. Then there was Jair. Not much is written about these two but at least they instilled calm in the land for a good period of time.
You may find yourself in places where very little is said or seen about you. But people like your kind are needed for the overall growth of the Father’s Divine Agenda. Keep doing the good you do even if no one is noticing, the heavenly father is!
Have a blessed day.
