God’s people were once:
• full of justice
But they had become:
• watered down
And, therefore – God brought judgement (v 25).
Completely justified judgement. If that were the end of the story – no one could question that it was deserved.
And, yet, there is this beautiful word…
Afterward (v 26) ♥️
The unfaithfulness of the people led to judgement.
But the judgement of God led to afterward.
Thank you, Lord, for the judgement that brings about the afterward.
