Good grapes - Bad grapes?

Isaiah 5: 1-2
...My beloved had a vineyard on a rich and fertile hill. He plowed the land, cleared the stones, and planted it with the best vines. In the middle he built a watchtower and carved a winepress in the nearby rocks. Then he waited for a harvest of sweet grapes, but the grapes that grew were bitter.

He did everything possible to have a wonderful harvest! He did everything!

God prepared Israel and expected a good yield from the harvest, but instead he got sour grapes! Sour grapes only good for dumping...other countries were able to invade her, desolation was across the country and sin was rampant...God did His part, but the people failed!

Do you think we are producing sweet grapes or sour grapes? Are we having a good harvest or not?

Often times, I wonder are we any different? Not much...time doesn't change much because we are humans, but we have Christ that died for our sins! Praise the LORD!

Are we producing good grapes or bad grapes? Ponder that today...

Sweet blessings,
