“Balaam answered Balak, “Didn’t I previously tell the messengers you sent me: If Balak were to give me his house full of silver and gold, I could not go against the Lord’s command, to do anything good or bad of my own will? I will say whatever the Lord says.”

Numbers 24:12-13 HCSB

I am humbled by Balaam. I could only hope to be like him. He was true to his word, and that of what the Lord told him. He could have said a blessing, though it would have been empty words, and come away rich, but he didn’t. He was obedient to the Lord and the gift He gave him.
