THE MEDITATION OF MY HEART

Apathetic City: Sodom- Population 0 – Ezekiel 16:49-50

Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy. They were haughty and did an abomination before me. So I removed them, when I saw it. – Ezekiel 16:49-50

This is an outstanding passage because God utterly destroyed the city of Sodom in Genesis 19 with fire and brimstone. Whatever other factors may have resulted in God’s judgement on Sodom, Ezekiel’s words cut me to the core. God destroyed them in part because, in spite of all there wealth, they did not care for those in need.
