In Jeremiah 38, we talked about how doing the right thing sometimes leads to punishment. But what about the people doing the punishing? When Babylon destroys our city or we get thrown into a cistern of mud, what happens to the guys doing the destroying or throwing? Will the bad guys get what’s coming to them? And, is it okay to want that to happen?
Habakkuk is helpless and humble before a holy God, and at the same time, hopeful that the Lord will be merciful even in the midst of the horrible times coming.
