“Go throughout the city of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of those who grieve and lament over all the detestable things that are done in it”.
Again reading the book of Ezekiel has its moments of challenge for me… but each day it seems I am able to get an application out of it for today. Today’s application while easy to see is a strong call to all of God’s people. We are a people who are quickly becoming desensitized to the things that God detests. Many of us don’t even notice the sin that is taking place amongst the world. We don’t notice the injustices and the just plain wrong doing of others. Even atrocities to others don’t seem to move us to action or phase us anymore. I am sad to admit that, that is me all too often.
The question for the day is “Are you grieving and lamenting over the detestable things that God is grieving over? Perhaps another question that should be asked is do you even know things grieve God?
Until next time,
