Faithful Friday Faves: Obadiah

I remember reading Obadiah just after the Iranian hostage crisis and finding myself shocked at the similarities between the description of Edom and the traditions/conditions of the United States...and therefore deeply concerned about the future of our country.

Now, it seems ironic that I am re-reading Obadiah again this week.

Because of the violence against your brother Jacob, you will be covered with shame; you will be destroyed forever. On the day you stood aloof while strangers carried off his wealth and foreigners entered his gates and cast lots for Jerusalem, you were like them. - Obadiah v. 10 - 11

Not making any political statements here...just praying.
