SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK - EZEKIEL 18:21-23

In this oft-quoted passage in Ezekiel, the Lord speaks about the righteous and sinners. God looks at the path sinners are taking and sees that such a path leads to death. The Lord cries out a warning to repent, to turn around. He says, "I take not pleasure in the death of any man."

God does not want to punish; God wants to transform. God is not interested in getting even with those who have sinned against Him. He takes no pleasure in their demise. He simply wants them to follow His divine instruction, instruction that leads to life, that is in our best interest.

Surely this saying lies behind Jesus' commandment to love our enemies as God loves His. At the very least, such love means we "take no pleasure in the death of any man."
