POISON

Deuteronomy 32:32

 

dissatisfaction

“For their vine is from the vine of Sodom, And from the fields of Gomorrah; Their grapes are grapes of poison, Their clusters, bitter.

 

LESSON

 

This fruit, which the Arabs call “Lot’s Sea Orange,” is of a bright yellow color and grows in clusters of three or four. When mellow, it is tempting in appearance, but on being struck, explodes like a puffball, consisting of skin and fiber only.

Israel’s unfaithfulness would not thwart God’s purposes for her, however. God would use other nations to discipline His people, but He would judge them too. The Old Testament writers compared Israel to Sodom and Gomorrah many times, but they never compared the heathen nations to those wicked cities.

Where do we stand as a Nation Spiritually? If we think that it is not our concern to care for those who cannot care for themselves, we must remember the past, look at the present, and plan for the future.

 

Memory Verse: Numbers 21:6
