Today's reading Habakkuk 1:1 - Zechariah 10:12
"For thus saith the LORD of hosts; As I thought to punish you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, saith the LORD of hosts, and I repented not: So again have I thought in these days to do well unto Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear ye not." Zech. 8:14,15 KJB
God had said quite a bit of what Israel deserves because of her sin but still he wants to hold back and not punish this generation for the sins of their fathers. He is not quick to punish as some of us have been lead into believing.
Grace, Grace, God's grace...
