Israel Struggles to Remain Faithful
Judges 2:7-8, 11-19
But whenever the judge died, they would relapse and behave worse than their ancestors, following other gods, worshiping them and bowing down to them. They would not drop any of their practices or their stubborn ways. Judges 2:19 NRSV
When we tie our commitment to people, we fail in our charge to keep covenant. Our faithfulness to God is tied to the Lord’s abiding presence with us.
