God’s adornment of Jerusalem

God loved Jerusalem and Ezekiel 16:9-14 shows how He treated her, making her exceedingly beautiful, washing her, anointing her with oil, clothing her with the finest material, giving her precious metals and great jewels, and fine food.

He said to Jerusalem,

“‘You were exceedingly beautiful, and succeeded to royalty. Your fame went out among the nations because of your beauty, for it was perfect through My splendor which I had bestowed on you,’ says the Lord GOD” (Ezekiel 16:13-14).

God blesses, but He wants love in return, something that Jerusalem later failed to do, hence, He deported them to Babylon.

Has God blessed you? What have you done to Him in return?
