Balaam and his “talking” donkey is a famous children’s Sunday school story. The real Balaam from the Bible was a prophet for hire who tried to curse Israel at the behest of Balak, King of Moab. The kingdom of Moab was the next stop on the Israel Exodus. Having just destroyed the Amorites, King Balak decided to stack the deck in his favor, including any possible divine decks. Find out how that worked out for them. This lesson is from our series Keep the Fires Burning. Keep the Fires Burning is a Bible Study series of the minor characters of the Bible that can teach us major lessons. Each episode will introduce you to a new character and help you understand why they are mentioned.

My goal is that their hearts, having been knit together in love, may be encouraged, and that they may have all the riches that assurance brings in their understanding of the knowledge of the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. - Colossians 2:2-3
