Joel 2:18-27

Today’s Reading is Joel 2:18-27.
Joel says that the Lord promises to bless the people by making the land produce food again and by rescuing them from the locust attack. So far so good. But at the end starts wishful thinking:
“You will praise the LORD your God, who has done wonderful things for you. My people will never be despised again.”
You can save people but you cannot create gratitude or anything in them. Praising is an option that possible as a thankful reply but by no means a predetermined reaction.
