The Amilicites bringing the curse upon us is a cautionary tale for each of us. What are we struggling with? What makes us unhappy? Do we have the courage to ask ourselves, 'how did I make this come upon myself?' Perhaps it is the result of our own poor decisions. Or perhaps our suffering is the result of unrighteously coveting things we have no right to receive. Whatever the reason, if we are unhappy we have no other choice than to look inward, because that is where the change needs to happen. We must stop cursing ourselves. The Lord, thankfully, stands ready to help us in that effort.
