“‘The parents eat sour grapes,
and the children’s teeth are set on edge’?
Ezekiel addresses this proverb with a generational example that is AMAZING! Honestly, I don’t think you need me on this one. I had actually written a very long post this morning but deleted it. But can I share my favorite part:
21 “But if a wicked person turns away from all the sins they have committed and keeps all my decrees and does what is just and right, that person will surely live; they will not die. 22 None of the offenses they have committed will be remembered against them. Because of the righteous things they have done, they will live. 23 Do I take any pleasure in the death of the wicked? declares the Sovereign Lord. Rather, am I not pleased when they turn from their ways and live?
It’s called the Amazing Grace for Szymanski.
Take a minute to re-read Ezekiel 18 (I really wanted to cut and paste 21-32 because they say so much!) By the way, if you read today and could “argue” the opposite based off of scriptures in Deuteronomy… I am ready for it…just hit me in comments and we can do it. 😉
Ezekiel 19- Ummmm did Baruch’s pen run out of ink on this one? I was left with….well what about the restoration?? This was an analogy played off the prior reading. One commentary I read on it called it “How the Mighty have Fallen!”.
The two cubs may represent the two kings: Jehoahaz and Jehoiachin. Sorry….this is so late I just am stressed about not posting….going to end here. Bad day 😢 at school.
