by popular demand

Judges 10:1-11:3

The difference between this narrative and the others in Judges is that Jepthah’s judgeship seems to be initiated by the people, and God endorses it with his favor.  We should not be afraid of doing something that has a popular mandate as long as God approves of it.  Often it is in finding a need and filling it that a believer finds his or her calling.

LORD, give us eyes to see a need, and a hear of compassion for the needy.
