Isaiah 1:21-30; the focus of our desire

This is a powerful picture of that ah-ha moment we can stumble upon when we realize that every thing we thought was so important either is not, or pales in comparison to what really is.  Again in these verses  the people have been drawn away from God and desired other things (“oaks” vs 29).  When the Lord reveals Himself to us and reminds us of the importance of a walk with Him, “surely you will be ashamed at the oaks which you have desired and embarrassed at the gardens which you have chosen”.  This is not meant to shame or guilt us back into close relationship with God but just to warn us that one day we will realize (hopefully sooner rather than later) that some things are just more important than other things.
