Handling Problems with Courage and Care

We all face problems each day that must be handled with care and courage. Aaron, Moses’ brother and second-in-command, is a sad example of how not to handle problems.

While Moses was on Mount Sinai receiving the Ten Commandments from God, Aaron was left in charge of the people of Israel. During Moses’ 40-day absence, the cried out to Aaron, “Come, make us gods that shall go before us” (Exodus 32:1).

Aaron was unwilling to face the problem or even try to persuade the people that making an idol was a bad idea. Instead, he took the easiest road to “solving” his problem—he gave in…”and made a molded calf” (verses 2, 4).

Aaron solved his dilemma in an irresponsible, cowardly manner. As a result of his failure to deal with the problem correctly, thousands of people died in God’s ensuing judgment.

The lesson from Aaron’s failure is sobering. It teaches us that every problem must be handled with care and courage. What may seem like a minor issue can easily escalate into a major crisis if it’s not handled properly. When you have a difficulty to solve, approach it as if its solution will be life-altering. Chances are high that it will be!

In 50 Most Important Teachings of the Bible, Jim George highlights key teachings every believer should know. With great clarity and simplicity, this book focuses on the most essential elements of the faith that’ll strengthen and encourage you!
