Re:Verse reading–Judges 2:1-3, 6-22 (day three)
“Why have you done this?” It’s not uncommon for people to ask questions of God. You might have expressed that thought to God just this morning. But sometimes God asks questions of us. When God does so, when God puts questions to us–Where are you? Where is your brother? What have you done?–he is clearly not seeking information out of ignorance. That much is self-evident. What is more important, though, is the fact that God asks questions of us at all. When God does this, he is addressing us as beings who are responsible for our actions, and beings who are capable of changing the way we think. When God asks a question, will you act surprised? Will you act like you don’t know what he’s talking about?
