Our Bible verses for today talk about people who disobey God. What will He do to people who break His laws and stop obeying His commands? Verse 32 gives us God’s answer, “I will punish them severely for their sins and wrongs.”
No one likes to be punished. But God has good news, too. The next few verses tell us that God may punish us, but He will never stop loving us or break His promises to us.
If a man steals something, the law says he will go to jail. But that does not mean that God stops loving the man. God will even help that man to use the jail time as a way to change his life and be closer to Him.
Sometimes God uses times of punishment as a way to train and mold us to love and serve Him more. Trust God today and ask Him to help you make good choices in life.
