What we see here is an ideal example of how to go about dealing with things in the Church that you disagree with. The sons of Manasseh did not confront Moses in a manner that denigrated his role as a prophet or as a leader of the Church. They did not come to him with predetermined solutions that were non-negotiable. But they also didn’t remain silent and expect the Lord to automatically tell Moses what to do. Rather they respectfully brought the issue before Moses and then waited upon the Lord’s response through his chosen prophet.
