Why did God choose the people of Israel? Are we special? Better? Wiser? Mightier?
The answer is NO. We are not better than any other Nation, as God explains it to Moses:
“Yet it was to your ancestors that Adonai our God was drawn (Lusted in the original Hebrew) in love for them, so that God chose you, their lineal descendants, from among all peoples—as is now the case” (Deuteronomy 10:15).
God fell in love with our ancestors, and love is a mystery, it does not always make sense. God explains that Israel is smaller than other Nations, and not that great, however, God has a crush on us, so we are chosen.
