“Cause and Effect”
Ezekiel 7: 23, 27: “For the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence … The king will mourn, the prince will be clothed with horror, and the hands of the people of the land will tremble. According to their conduct I will deal with them, and by their judgments I shall judge them. And they will know that I am the Lord.” Undeniably, society is getting bloodier and more violent. Almost weekly we hear of another mass shooting, another senseless bombing. But in the midst of accusations and denials, remember: God deals with us according to our own conduct and judgments. If we disrespect the lives of others, we shouldn’t expect rosiness in our own situations.
