Mountain Views

Most people experience a sense of awe as they stand on top of a high mountain with a spectacular view.

But what mixed emotions Moses must have had when he stood on top of Mt Nebo. He had led the Israelites almost to the Promised Land but now as his death was imminent, he looked out over the land he wasn’t to enter.

Deuteronomy 34:4 Then the LORD said to him, "This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when I said, 'I will give it to your descendants.' I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it."
