Loved but not changed

RE Verse reading–Isaiah 5: 1-13, 18-23 (day six)  “What more could have been done for my vineyard than I have done?” (vs 4)  One argument that God has against the human race is that despite His goodness, we have not learned to love/trust Him.  It is a sad and honest report.  God HAS been good to us (life, freedom, resources, scripture, Spirit, friends, teachers. . .a long list of His kindness) but we have not changed.  Many still fear and cling to control of our own lives (the illusion of it, anyway).  This is deep illness.  To receive so much and yet stay so selfish, to accept His help but never address the anxiety and pride that really controls us is to finally leave God no other option.  He will let us go because there is nothing else to do.  At some point every man must decide.  Will I be loyal to my illness/my fears or loyal to the God who has loved me?
