(Isaiah 5)

“Let me sing of my friend who had a vineyard. . . .” And Isaiah sings how a man planted a vineyard with the greatest of care and it yielded some grapes at harvest time.

Isaiah is reminding Israel that she was God’s most cherished people but she turned away from God and their love turned to sour grapes.

Lord God, our world is filled with rejection and broken promises and hearts. You call us to integrity, truth and love. Grace us with wisdom and courage.
