16 Feb Malachi 3:14a

14a “It is useless to serve God,” they said. “What have we gained by keeping His requirements?”

Did God still care? It wasn’t long until the Israelites fell back into the same patterns of sin that led to their exile in the first place. But God did still love His people. He had been working out His divine plan of redemption, and He never gave up on them. God sent a message to His people through the prophet Malachi.
