I can remember a number of people who lost their testimonies over the Mark Hoffman situation. I always found that a bit bizarre, but more so when thinking of it in light of these chapters. After all, didn’t Joshua make a mistake here? And do we not know that he was a prophet? Of course we do.
The better lesson, though, is how important it is not to trust our eyes, but rather to trust the Lord. Even when we think we might know what is going on, it is important to always take matters to the Lord to better understand His will and to not make the mistakes that we would otherwise be making.
