Isaiah 22:12-25 - Party Time- Really?
Jerusalem has gone beyond the pale. Instead of repentance there is revelry; instead of piety there is partying in the city. Whether in the case of poor leaders like Shebna, or good men like Eliakim, the load of God’s people’s sin is too great. Judgment looms. What is the warning for us in these words? How can we keep from being self-absorbed like Shebna? How can we keep from thinking it depends on our performance like Eliakim?
