12pieces

Today’s verse comes from the most horrific and disturbing things I have read in the bible. The verses are Judges 19:21-30 but I am only going to write the 29th verse, “When he entered his house, he picked up a knife, took hold of his concubine, cut her into 12 pieces, limb by limb, and then sent her throughout the territory of Israel.” This was never God’s plan for humanity. This is an image not of what God allows but of the distance the Israelites strayed from God and his plan.
