"This is what the Lord Almighty says: 'Just as I had determined to bring disaster upon you and showed no pity when your fathers angered me,' says the Lord Almighty, 'so now I have determined to do good again to Jerusalem and Judah. Do not be afraid. These are the things you are to do: Speak the truth to each other, and render true and sound judgment in your courts; do not plot evil against your neighbor, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this,' declares the Lord."
If you expect God to do his part,
you have to do your part!
God promised to give his people rich rewards,
despite the fact they had been punished
because they had angered him.
It appears God was determined
to bring disaster & to bring good,
if the people did their part.
God will be faithful,
BUT we also have responsibilities.
