Num 12:1-2

1 Then Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married; for he had married an Ethiopian woman. 2 So they said, "Has the LORD indeed spoken only through Moses? Has He not spoken through us also?" And the LORD heard it.

I remember a few years ago when a young man who was a new youth pastor, was in a church I was going to.
This young man would always talk about the pastor, putting him down all the time. He even got others and me into it also.
Eventually this young man left the church because the Lord stopped his ministry there.
Where he is now I don't know, but I even remember seeing him a few months after he left and he was still the same way.
He just didn't seem to learn at the time that you don't speak against the Lord's anointed.
We see this in today's devotional verses, where Moses' brother and sister are speaking against or even judging Moses.
Did you catch the last sentence of verse two?
And the LORD heard it.

You may not like everything about your pastor, but as long as he is teaching the word of God and not leading others away from God's word, then we need to watch what we say about them to others.

If you really have a problem with someone, be it your pastor or someone else, then take it up with that person. But also make sure you are checking scripture and praying about it, because a lot of times it's us that are in the wrong and not the other person.
