When people and nations drift away from God, bad things happen. The twelve Minor Prophets in the Old Testament challenged Israel when she chased after foreign gods, warning of God’s impending judgment if they did not repent, while promising restoration if they did.
Because history often repeats itself, and because basic human nature hasn’t changed, it is wise for us to hear again the messages delivered by the Minor Prophets, as they say to us, “Return to the Lord Your God!”
They are called “minor” only because their messages are short and to the point. But their ancient messages pack a major wallop. Do you have ears to hear what the Minor Prophets say to us today?
