I Called But You Did Not Answer

      Isaiah 65:11-13
But as for you who forsake the Lord
    and forget my holy mountain,
who spread a table for Fortune
    and fill bowls of mixed wine for Destiny,
12 I will destine you for the sword,
    and all of you will fall in the slaughter;
for I called but you did not answer,
    I spoke but you did not listen.
You did evil in my sight
    and chose what displeases me.” 

I shake my head at the thought of God giving so many chances to mankind. He so desperately tried not to judge. He tried desperately not to hold a grudge. He tried over, and over again. The thing that puzzles me and then again it doesn't because we do it today. Mankind was given everything they needed to survive, but arrogance and greed changed their needs to wants and this turned into a chain of negative events.
