Bible Marginalia- Mend your Ways

Bible Marginalia Series- #145

Jeremiah speaks the truth. 
The people had moved far from 
obedience to the Lord.
Jeremiah implored them
 to mend their ways
and deeds.
We don't like hearing that 
we need to reverse course.
Jeremiah spoke the words 
of the Lord to the people.
He did not hold back.
v. 3 It may be they will listen.
Somehow in this time 
and place in the world-
it certainly seems like 
the people do not OBEY
 the voice of the LORD.
It makes me wonder what will be
 God's righteous judgment on the people 
who do not mend their ways.

Lord, let our hearts be malleable.
Let our pride crumble.
Shine the light on the ways to repent-
to be on our knees before you.
