Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel.
From Denis Praeger's The Rational Bible - Deuteronomy
Pick from each of your tribes men who are wise, discerning, and experienced, and I will appoint them as your heads. Deuteronomy 1:13
"In Moses' recounting, God did not tell him to pick good men to be leaders. Wouldn't being a good person be one of the major attributes, if not the major attribute, one would seek in a leader? While the Torah takes for granted that a leader should be a good person, goodness is not sufficient. That is why all three traits listed here concern wisdom. There is an extraordinarily important lesson here - one of the most important in the Torah and in life: A good society is unattainable without wisdom." to read more see "A Good Society is Unattainable without Wisdom".
