As we continue our journey through the "Judges," of Israel we come to Tola. Tola was the son of Pauh, son of Dodo, a man of Issachar. The only other things the Bible say about him in the book of Judges is that he rose up to save Israel, he lived in Shamir in the mountain region of Ephraim, he judged Israel twenty-three years, and he died and was buried in Shamir. That's all we really know about Tola.
Tola teaches us an important lesson and I know you are thinking what can that be? Though Tola story doesn't provide us much details the significant thing about Tola is that he is mentioned!! For many us that is not enough we want to have memorable stories like Gideon, or Samson but the fact that Tola is mentioned means that he didn't go unnoticed by God. People get caught up in the details but God sees the big picture!! At the end of the day he saved Israel like the other judges with more popular stories.
So maybe your life seems like Tola not very grandiose, or doesn't seem like what you are doing is be noticed by anyone remember God notices what you do and it is significant to God!!!
