So looking at Numbers 22:21.
Here is this highly sought after oracle named Balaam and his donkey, who I’ll call Bridget for story’s sake. She was a female, after all. At least she was according to my Bible version, but you know there are sometimes discrepancies.
One day Balaam was riding on Bridget, blissfully unaware that one of God’s angels came, sword in hand, to end his life. Bridget wasn’t the one opposing God’s will so she had nothing to fear. But still, she saw and avoided the angel to save Balaam’s life.
Keep in mind that Balaam was sitting on her. And making her do all the work while he had his feet kicked up and was enjoying the ride. She saved his life and he beat her. This happened three times.
Three times Balaam’s ass saved… well Balaam’s ass (lol).
And her reward was a beating from Balaam.
Finally, the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes. And he finally saw what Bridget had been doing. All that to make him realize God wasn’t happy with his actions. Some oracle, right?
But the moral of the tale, at least what I got from it, is this:
No matter what your station in life is. No matter if you’re working for or with someone that doesn’t appreciate the good that you do, don’t give up!
The Lord is never blind to righteousness.
