Billy Graham was once quoted to say, “When wealth is lost, nothing is lost; when health is lost, something is lost; when character is lost, all is lost”. The environment we live in shapes our character so it’s important to control or neutralizes the negative influences in our life. Instead desiring to be surrounded with friends, family, and co-workers that encourage us in living the way we should.

In today’s reading of Ezekiel 16:43-63, Israel is portrayed as a mother with daughters who despised their husbands and children. They were arrogant, lacked self-control, and were unconcerned about helping the poor or needy. As we read the passage, warnings of God’s judgment is communicated but there is also a promise of mercy in gospel times where the law will be written in the heart.

God’s people can trust in God’s mercy and grace through Jesus Christ. At this link: God’s

We always have the chance to start over and wipe the past away; refreshed with God’s truth.
