Judges 3-5: Ehud, the left-handed Assassin

The book of Judges is broken into several sections, each dealing with a particular judge over the nation of Israel. One such Judge is Ehud, a left-handed man. I don’t want to get into the whole story, but you can read it here.

I have always had an affinity for Ehud because I’m left-handed as well. That, however, is about where the similarities stop (other than our love for the Lord). I am not courageous, I am not an assassin, and I have never escaped through someone’s toilet.

That’s just not me.

But one of the greatest things about being a part of the body of Christ is that God has called each one of us for a specific task. Some will do amazing and visible things for the glory of God and for His Kingdom that will bring fame. Others will never do anything for the public to see, but Paul reminds us in 1 Corinthians that the invisible parts of the body are just as important as the visible.

There is no small work for the glory of God.
There is no insignificant testimony.

God has called each one of us to do all things for His glory and if we never kill a terrible godless king and escape through the sewers, we are not lesser servants of God. But wouldn’t that be cool?
