rainy night

finally, the rain returns.
i spent most of the night at home, i love rainy nights especially when i am at home
sitting on the couch reading or journaling and have some music on.
i came across this passage today, i would say, the entire book of Malachi,
i haven't read that book much, i mean does anyone else read that book (it's the book
right before the book of Matthew, the last book of the Old Testament ...) if you haven't even seen that portion of Bible before, i suggested you take a look at it ..
it's a warning from the Lord to the Israelites, while the Israelites ask God back .." did we really do that ?" ... many times we did asked some questions like that, knowing the answer is yes, and yet at the same time we tried to cover that up by some other stuff that we did that might look nice outwardly ... here are a few verses that really struck me ..

Malachi 1:6 "A son honors his father, and a servant his master. If I am a father, where is the honor due me? If I am a master, where is the respect due me?" says the LORD Almighty. "It is you, O priests, who show contempt for my name.

did we give God His respect, many times we've tried NOT to break the civil law, or even moral laws, but how much respect did we give to God?

let's worship Him.

that's all i have to say.
