Think Israel.

They were chosen as a people.

They were delivered from bondage.

They were preserved through the wilderness.

They were instructed by God.

Yet they rebelled against God.

Yet they were led into the land of promise despite the fact.

Their numbers  multiplied.

They enjoyed an abundance of blessings.

Yet continued to rebel against their God.

They were delivered into the hands of their enemies.

But were delivered from their enemies.

They did evil again.

Yet many times God delivered them according to His mercy.

And no matter how many times they were disobedient, He never forsook His people.

Because they were His people.

And He loved them.

Just as He loves you.

Because you are always good?

No.

Because you belong to Him.
