Nothing can heal you;
your wound is fatal.
All who hear the news about you
clap their hands at your fall,
for who has not felt
your endless cruelty?
-Nahum 3:19, NIV (About Assyria)
I continue to be astounded by how cruel humans can be to other humans. Stories I hear and experiences I have had are truly shocking and breathtaking. It truly breaks my heart.
Adulterous spouses filing for divorce on wedding anniversaries.
Cheaters painting the faithful spouse as psychologically crazy to “justify” their actions.
Or even taking a faithful spouse to court alleging criminal activity when the faithful spouse is innocent!
What is wrong with these people?!
Raping their spouse’s soul is not enough. They have to attack them in the cruelest of ways. As if they cannot wait one more day to avoid filing for divorce on a wedding anniversary?
It is rage.
And it is contempt.
What is wrong with these people is sin and a demonstrably hard, wicked heart.
How else do you explain such mean cruelty and total disregard for the spouses of their youth? It is a front row seat to the show “Human Depravity” that none of us wanted to attend.
