We continue in our journey of reading 65 (of the 66) of the books of the Bible in one sitting. This is called unit-reading and today we are looking at the minor prophet Habakkuk.
I am impressed with the honesty of Habakkuk, accusing the Lord of not listening.
But my prayer is what closes this short book:
“Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior.”
How about you? Do you value the gifts more than the Giver?
