March 30 – The First Judges
After Joshua’s death, the Israelites worshiped idols, which led to oppression by foreign kings. Then they cried out to God. God raised up the judges Othniel, Ehud, and Shamgar to deliver His people. As long as the judge lived, the people followed God and experienced peace. God sent a true Deliverer; His Son, Jesus, died for our sin and delivered us forever from sin and death.
