As we continue our journey through the "Judges" of Israel we come to Elon. Elon the Zebulunite judged Israel ten years. Elon was buried at Aijalon in the country of Zebulun. That's all the Bible says about Elon in the book of Judges. His name means tree or oak tree.
Elon still has something to say to us because God chose him. I know that may not sound like much but it really is everything! The fact that he was chosen to deliver Israel implies that he was a faithful to Yahweh. No greater compliment can a believer be granted than to be faithful to Yahweh. Also oak tree in the bible refers to a strong and mighty tree. Which implies that Elon perhaps was a strong and mighty judge.
Can you be considered an oak? A strong believer who is faithful to Yahweh? Or do you crumble and lose faith as the pressures of life mount. I encourage you to today to be strong in the faith like an oak and stay faithful to Yahweh even when your life situations suggest otherwise.
