  1. Isaiah poetically portrays God as one in love with his people, one who wants to sing “a song about his vineyard” (Isaiah 5:1); “Then he looked for a crop of good grapes, but it yielded only bad fruit…what more could have been done for my vineyard than I have done for it?” (5:2-4) “The vineyard of the Lord Almighty is the nation of Israel, and the people of Judah” (5:7). Such powerful imagery. Our God lamenting over us. Such sadness, such realization that the next verses show he must take action. “Therefore my people will go into exile for lack of understanding” (5:13).

    Yet the people would not relent. Isaiah, Amos, Micah and Hosea spoke prophesies using different approaches, attempting to reach the people, but they could not or would not hear. Lord, may we hear your words, may we bear good fruit in your vineyard even today. Let us not be wise in our own eyes or too clever for our own good (5:21). Teach us and make us listen!
