In today’s reading the first verse stood out to me, A man who remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed—without remedy. Doing the same mistake over and over is an invitation to disaster. We must learn from our mistakes, accept God’s grace, then move on. But when we continue to do the same mistakes over and over, especially when we actively rebel against God, eventually we have to accept the consequences of our sin. God gives us grace freely, but His grace is not a free pass to do whatever we want.
