This is what I read yesterday and it also hit home with me.
Come back to the Lord your God, because he is kind and shows mercy. He doesn't become angry quickly, and he has great love. Joel 2:13
How far do you want God to go in getting your attention? If God has to choose between your eternal safety and your earthly comfort, which do you hope he chooses? What if he moved you to another land? (As he did Abraham)
What if he called you out of retirement? (Remember Moses?)...God does what it takes to get our attention. Isn't that the message of the Bible? The relentless pursuit of God.
