Son of man, you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, who have eyes to see, but see not, who have ears to hear, but hear not;
for they are a rebellious house.
Ezek 12: 2-3
Nothing has changed. Isn’t this the world we live in now? The greed with which people rape the earth, force people to work for them in dire conditions, put profit first in all their transactions. They are blind to the damage they cause that means all their gains will only ever be short term. And they are deaf to the voices, effectively in the wilderness, crying out warnings about the wrong paths that they’re taking.
Oh God, open the eyes and ears of those who, through selfishness and greed, are degrading the earth for all of us now and also put future generations at grave risk. Let the prophets of our time be heard.
