The lost patience

"On the way the people lost patience. They spoke against God and against Moses. (Numbers 21: 4 – 5)

Why did the people lose patience? They lost patience because the journey had become longer than expected and the perceived suffering more acute. God did not excuse their impatience and punished them for it. He teaches us a lesson in this event. If God is in control, then all is well. No complaint, no criticism, no condemnation will be tolerated.
