A mother was watching her favorite TV program. Suddenly she heard a car horn outside. She ran to the window and looked out to see her child chasing a ball across the street. She ran outside and pulled her back into the house. Once inside, mother began yelling at the child. She then proceeded to dish out punishment with a good spanking. The child had been told time after time to stay out of the street. A father cut off his lawn mower and went inside for a drink of water. It was a hot day and he was tired. He heard spashing outside and went to see what was happening. He saw his 8 year old spashing around in the pool. He pulled him from the water reminding him of all the times he had been told not to go into the pool without supervision. Then came the spanking. All of us know when we do wrong. We know when we gossip. We know when we treat others badly. God is watching when we do wrong. Get ready for your punishment. God punished Jerusalem. Jerusalem sinned in God's eyes. God brought down the protective walls. It was a very long time before they were rebuilt. Don't think you are getting away with something when you sin. God is watching. There will be punishment.
