Old Testament in a year – Day 356

Malachi 1: 1 - 4: 6

1This is the message that the LORD gave Malachi to tell the people of Israel.
The LORD's Love for Israel
2 The LORD says to his people, “I have always loved you.”
But they reply, “How have you shown your love for us?”
The LORD answers, “Esau and Jacob were brothers, but I have loved Jacob and his descendants,3and have hated Esau and his descendants. I have devastated Esau's hill country and abandoned the land to jackals.”
