Sojourner featured the following from Isaiah yesterday:
I have seen their ways, but I will heal them; I will lead them and repay them with comfort, creating for their mourners the fruit of the lips. Peace, peace, to the far and the near, says the Lord; and I will heal them. But the wicked are like the tossing sea that cannot keep still; its waters toss up mire and mud. There is no peace, says my God, for the wicked.
Isaiah 57:18-21 Shorter, there is no peace for the wicked, but it is not for lack of trying on God’s part.
It is cool that the First Testament is full of stories about loving the unworthy.
