I think 18:25-27 are some very powerful verses. God is described as revealing himself to people in the way they reveal themselves. God is a God of love, but in love there is justice and without justice, there can be no real love. The Pharaoh was wicked and God treated him harshly. Nebuchadnezzar was proud and God humbled him. I need to remember this when I think God is treating me unfairly. There are some words to a song I listen to that says, “Just maybe, God responds to you the way you respond to him.”
