MALACHI‬ ‭2‬:‭17‬ ‭‬‬

“You have wearied the Lord with your words. “How have we wearied him?” you ask. You have wearied him by saying that all who do evil are good in the Lord’s sight, and he is pleased with them. You have wearied him by asking, “Where is the God of justice?””

Malachi‬ ‭2‬:‭17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

God is weary of the evil that abounds in his name. This isn’t to say that God is weakened by it or that God is capable of being made tired. The immature will focus on these things not understanding the emotional statement for what it is. God is infinitely weary about evil and it’s pervasive nature. His plan in space and time is to unravel it and all its proponents and advocates. Many do not realize this because God’s graces are infinitely long and so they think they can push eternally against him with no consequences. They begin to tell themselves myths about who he is and what he will afford in relationship. But Malachi paints a different picture. It paints one of a God who is allowing his grace to be full because his judgement is about to be rendered. This is an important aspect of having a healthy and mature relationship with him. He hasn’t forgotten our sins though he has forgiven them. We no longer have to pay for them, but we can still do so if that is the course we choose.
