The purposes why God allows our families to go through the trials in a desert are …

 

 

1.  1.    To humble us and to test us 

in o    in order to know what is in our hearts, whether or not we would keep his commands (Dt. 8:2),

 

2.   .  2. To teach us 

        that “man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord” (v.3),

 

3.    3.  To do good for us in the end (v.16)
