Isaiah 5:20 Ah, you who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Isaiah breaks my heart. He calls me out, and I am left in tears. The sins he lays at the feet of the children of Israel are mine too. It’s so easy to pretend that he’s not talking to me, that I’m not the one with a hard heart or the wrong perspective, that I’m not the one acting entitled to a position that rightly belongs to someone else. But both Isaiah and I know better.
MOVING FORWARD: Do you feel confronted by Isaiah’s words? How will you respond?
