Recently the Quiet Time Study page had me in Malachi, probably not a book I would have searched out on my own. How relevant can a 2500-year-old, pre-Christian sermon be? In Malachi 3:5 I read:
“So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against
against those who defraud laborers of their wages,
who oppress the widows and the fatherless,
and deprive the foreigners among you of justice,
but do not fear me,” says the LORD Almighty.
I wondered if Malachi had had a peak at some of the current news sites.
those who make use of occult powers instead of trusting God;
those who are unfaithful in their marriages,
or lack integrity;
big companies with unjust labor practices;
those who don’t give single mothers and their children a chance;
those who think someone doesn’t deserve the protection of the law just because they were born outside our borders.
Kind of sad that in 2500 years we haven’t learned much.
