What strikes me with these few verses is how the Children of Israel didn't live in the wilderness as though any part of it was their permanent dwelling, even if they had been there for months, they couldn't allow themselves the mentality of 'this is our home' because they knew that at some point, there would be a move as directed by God.
I'm challenged by how much I want to settle wherever I find myself happy or content. How accustomed do I become to a place without even thinking of the fact that whatever the station in life I'm at, God will want to move on and all the stuff I've set up and configured for my life here, my stuff and my needs, will need to be moved.
How permanent am I trying to make there here-and-now?
