“He mentioned the diverse chastisements under which He allowed them to fall, from which they did not profit; and each time He admonishes them, saying: “’Yet you have not returned to Me’, says the Lord” (6, 8, 9, 10, 11). This shows that chastisement in the eyes of God, are not for the sake of revenge, but for love. He longs to see man return to Him.”
+ Fr Tadros Malaty

Personal Question
The Lord provides us many opportunities to return to Him. Here we can see the many times He sought their repentance through the circumstances they faced. Can we reflect on the times that perhaps God was seeking our repentance, however we may have ignored these as calls to repentance?
