God had harsh words for Levitical priests that were divorcing their Jewish wives to marry women that worshiped idols. Their bad example emboldened other Jewish men to do the same thing. Because God is longsuffering, he had Malachi appeal to them to repent, to save them from the consequences of their sin, which was rooted in their hardness of heart. Please open your Bible to Malachi chapter two, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola begins his message entitled “The Tragedy of a Hard Heart.”
