All Rise: The Honorable Jair Presiding

As we continue our journey through the "Judges" of Israel we come to Jair. Jair the Gileadite  judged Israel twenty-two years. Jair had thirty sons who rode on thirty donkeys and possessed thirty cities in the land of Gilead. Jair died and was buried in Kamon.  That's all the bible says about Jair the judge. 

From this there are some things that we can deduce from Jair's life he judged for twenty-two years which means he had a successful reign that indicates that he was a good ruler. The fact that he had thirty sons who rode thirty donkeys and possessed thirty cities indicates that his sons were well off which more than likely means he was a wealthy man.

So what can we learned about from Jair? Just because your life is seemly insignificant in the eyes of others doesn't mean you can be successful in God eyes.  Though he may not seem important compared to the likes of Samson, Gideon, and Jephthah he had a successful reign.  I learned that its seemingly the most minor people who makes biggest impacts in life.  It's the stories you don't hear about that makes the biggest difference in life.   Think about it?

Scripture Reference: Judges 10
