I’ve been reading through Samuel and Kings. I can’t remember a time when my heart has been more heavy for the people of God. Why can’t we listen to the Bible? Why can’t we listen to God? Why can’t we remain in love with him? Why can’t we obey him?
I see no reason that God’s people today deserve exile any less than did the two kingdoms of Israel. I don’t know what it will look like, but I pray, like Abraham and Moses, that judgment will be delayed for the sake of the righteous people.
