As any good parent, God gives His children blessings and promises to reward their obedience, and warnings if they disobey. He is righteous in all that He does and never brings disincline without answering the question everyone asks, “Why?”
Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth!
For the Lord has spoken:
“I have nourished and brought up children,
And they have rebelled against Me;
The ox knows its owner
And the donkey its master’s crib;
But Israel does not know,
My people do not consider.”
Alas, sinful nation,
A people laden with iniquity,
A brood of evildoers,
Children who are corrupters!
They have forsaken the Lord,
They have provoked to anger
The Holy One of Israel,
They have turned away backward.
PRAY THAT ISRAEL WILL HEAR GOD’S WARNING AND TURN BACK TO GOD.
