Snub their noses. May 16
He said to me, “Have you seen this, son of man? Is it a trivial matter for the people of Judah to do the detestable things they are doing here? Must they also fill the land with violence and continually arouse my anger? Look at them putting the branch to their nose! Ezekiel 8:17
Putting the branch to their nose was very similar to what we would say “snubbed their noses” at God. Could you imagine someone Snubbing their nose at God. Or acting like He was inferior. When God gives us commands and ways to follow and we go opposite of His ways. We don’t like to think about it but it’s like we snub our noses to God, saying my way is better. God told Ezekiel, just look at them. And sure enough they had trouble coming their way. Today let’s humbly obey God in all our ways. Asking for His help and mercy each day. He even grants forgiveness when we’ve made mistakes, He just wants us to turn from wrong and walk in the right way with Him. And then He can say, just look at them, loving and serving me.
