LIVING WORDS A Term 2 LESSON 9 Habakkuk 1.1–2.4
How can you just sit there and do nothing?
Habakkuk has a big problem. God’s chosen people are not faithful and Habakkuk can’t understand why God doesn’t do anything to stop it. God answers Habakkuk, telling him that consequences are coming for Israel at the hands of the Babylonians. Habakkuk again wonders why God lets the wicked people do the judging. God’s answer shows that Israel’s enemies will not survive, but that the faithful ones will live by continuing to be faithful.
