Read: Ezekiel 16:1-22
If an idol becomes too powerful, a proverb states that you should inform it what kind of wood it is made of.
Sometimes we need a narrative like this to remind us of how we got to where we are now in life and to help us overcome our pride, arrogance, and pomposity.
God saw Israel abandoned in the field at birth, as many children are today, and had compassion and pity on her, asking her to survive.
He brought her, cleaned her, and groomed her for marriage, but as she grew older, she forgot the God who had created her and began to play the whore, prostituting with idols and forcing her children to pass through fire, just as the ungodly nations had done.
She broke the agreement she had with God and forgot about the God who had nurtured and shaped her into the person she is today.
I'm not sure if this story represents you, the reader, whom God has blessed and made known today, but you have abandoned God by not attending church and fellowship, Bible study, prayer meetings, not supporting God's work, and not spending your quiet time praying, reading, and meditating on God's word.
What about individuals who come from a very impoverished and terrible background and were rewarded by God with abundant resources and money, but now question God's existence?
Is it possible that God regrets keeping you alive when your peers are bedridden or dead?
Consider the things that have kept you from seeking God; they may hasten your death unless you repent now and seek the God you have rejected.
