We don’t like to hear that something’s wrong from the doctor, so we avoid an appointment. We ignore the check engine light. We whistle past the graveyard. By nature we like to think things are better off than they are. Spiritually, God gave Israel a wake-up call. He darkens our world to show us our sin. He darkens our world to show is immeasurable warmth and grace all the more.
