Ever been caught reading your bible by a member of your family?
This morning I was continuing my devotions from Jeremiah. Man, this is one depressed prophet. He has to give a message of doom, he has to, it is burning within him. Look at how the people react,
” 12 But the people replied, “Don’t waste your breath. We will continue to live as we want to, stubbornly following our own evil desires.”
Thats pretty blunt. Imagine if people in our churches and community were that blunt to us! We might be a bit depressed ourself. In fact maybe they do do this to you.
God’s reply does not pull any punches either!
“I will reduce Jerusalem to ruins, making it a monument to their stupidity.”
If anyone does not think God is not blunt, sarcastic and downright funny, in the midst of tragedy, this book will change your mind.
