Bible Study Evangelista - Catholic TV Series: Episode 4 - Balaam and Haman: Stubborn as a Mule

November 4, 2019

Balaam got really ticked off at his donkey. The animal just would not do what he wanted it to do. Balaam had a goal in mind and circumstances were not cooperating with his objectives. It is natural for us to pursue objectives and goal, but what if they don’t work out?

The obstacle Balaam was encountering in his donkey was actually a merciful blessing from God, a hindrance designed by God for his guidance and protection. Rather than receiving God’s message to him in the event, Balaam got angry at the donkey. Of course, Balaam’s motives were not right to begin with. But even if I am trying to do a good thing, how do I respond to circumstances I cannot control?
