Making God tired.

You have wearied the LORD with your words. But you say, “How have we wearied him?” By saying, “Everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delights in them.” Or by asking, “Where is the God of justice?”

Malachi 2:17

I remember the first time I heard a friend use the following phrase. “___________ (I can’t recall the name) makes me tired.” Do you know anyone who makes you tired? Someone who sucks up all the energy in the room? Someone who wearies you?

We don’t have to imagine how God feels with people who have “wearied the LORD” with their words. Malachi says specifically that those who weary Him are those who say “everyone who does evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and He delights in them.”

I saw a disturbing example of just that kind of idea to the extreme last week. A pastor was delivering a message to two young people seating at the front of the church. He spoke of Romans 12:2 and the idea of transformation while talking to a man dressed in drag to celebrate the trans movement as an example of God’s transforming power. He quite literally was promoting this lie to the children in the room.

Yes, maybe that is an extreme example, but this message was directed to the people in Malachi’s day who followed the same principle and necessarily abandon God’s principles expressed in His Word.

Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
and shrewd in their own sight!

Isaiah 5:2021
