The Recabites are an interesting group of people. They maintained a nomadic order for over 200 years in obedience to what their ancestor, Jehonadab had commanded. As a result they were looked upon favorable. The nomadic lifestyle allowed them to rely on God more and lessened the temptations that came with infrastructure. Think about it, it would take great faith to step out and trust God for you food that day and every other need you have.
