So far in Malachi we have heard God dispute with the priests and people of Israel about their compromised worship and sinful behavior. This weekend we find that they have learned to rationalize their sin and also minimize the grace of God. They live as though God won’t intervene in their lives. But they are gravely wrong in mistaking God’s patience for disinterest. The truth is simple: God will deal with sin, and in the end, all glory will be his!
