Isaiah 5:13 Therefore my people go into exile without knowledge; their nobles are dying of hunger, and their multitude is parched with thirst.
Our muchness is what heartens our own spirits and fills up the spirit of the community—the voice that proclaims, “I am because we are.” Isaiah has watched his community forget and forge and fabricate their stories. They aren’t telling them for the right reasons, and they certainly aren’t taking them to heart. Isaiah’s audience has started twisting and turning stories to suit their own desires instead of studying them—rubbing the living flesh of the stories until they cry out with abiding love of a God whose will is always better than our own.
MOVING FORWARD: How will you continue to be a faithful steward of your story and the story of God?
