Standing Upon Our Watch

We can learn a great deal from the prophet Habakkuk, whether we consider his wise example from the point of view of individual or collective problems.

Habakkuk had a national problem on his hands. His country was suffering grievously from the assaults and depredations of the Chaldeans—"that bitter and hasty nation," he called them. But Habakkuk had perceived something of the absolute divine nature of God. He was in fact a spiritual seer. Thus it was that he could declare: "Art thou not from everlasting, O Lord my God, mine Holy One? we shall not die;" and, "Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity."
