For Israel’s sin, the Lord would send locusts against the nation, and the farmers would feel it,
Be ashamed, you farmers,
Wail, you vinedressers,
For the wheat and the barley;
Because the harvest of the field has perished…
Surely joy has withered away from the sons of men.
(Joel 1:11-12)
The farmer’s joy is a bountiful crop, and his mourning is no crop, for then he makes no living and people have no food, in this case, all this because Israel refused to repent.
The Lord means business. Let us live as pleases Him, not ourselves.
