The Lord is Good
Nahum; Habakkuk; Zephaniah | November 28-December 4
Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah were all prophets who were called by the Lord to cry repentance to certain cities. They warned the people of the coming destruction that would happen, but reminded them that the Lord could help them if they turned to Him. The people could choose to follow the Lord and be protected, or they could choose to turn away from Him and be destroyed. Even though the Lord loved them and wanted them to be safe, He couldn’t help them if they didn’t listen to Him. They had been given their agency to choose. Sadly, they chose not to listen.
Sometimes our parents warn us of things that might happen if we don’t listen to them. If we listen we are protected. If we don’t listen we could get hurt. Our loving Father in Heaven is good and kind. He will guide us and protect us if we choose to listen to Him. He allows us to make choices so we can learn.
