Ezekiel 4:17–for food and water will be scarce. They will be appalled at the sight of each other and will waste away because of their sin.
Ezekiel was showing the people an example of the impending judgment God was bringing because of their sin. Sin has consequences and it affects every part of our life including how we view each other. This view of sin is important because people are often hard-pressed to recognize the impact sin has on their lives. Never underestimate the destructive power of even the smallest sin. Instead, come to God in repentance.
Father, I pray You will help me see the impact my wrongs have on my life and the lives of others. Please help me to turn to You and repent so that it is Your mercy that is impacting my life and not my sin.
