I just read in Numbers about Balaam and how he would only bless Israel even though Balak wanted him to curse them. He really stood up for God even when he was threatened. Then I read about how Phinehas drove a spear through this dude and lady's private parts and killed them while they were having an unholy orgy and worshipping a false God. God totally blessed Phinehas and his family for being so zealous to defend God's honor. All this OT reading is making me realize that God doesn't play. There's nothing casual about him or his true followers. You've gotta go a little crazy for him if you're going to follow him!
