Ponder this: Jeremiah 7:28
“So you shall say to them, ‘This is a nation that does not obey the voice of the Lord their God nor receive correction. Truth has perished and has been cut off from their mouth.”
I prefer not to come off negative but is this not the path a large portion of our nation is on today?
The ‘Reality of Truth’ must triumph over ignorance but too many people are willfully choosing self over God; those looking backwards and down. I sense this quite prevelantly more and more
This passage was originally directed to the people of Judah. Unfortunately (for the hating disobedient stiffnecked amongst us it affects everyone), it is applicable today for we remain under Heaven ruled by the same God.
So then what?
Shall we continue to backslide or be bold?
Shall we hide or speak truth?
Shall we ingore or share love?
May God empower us to ‘boldly live and speak truth while we love God and share our love’.
If you find yourself going backwards down the dead end stinky street of life, simply call out to God for help and read the Bible as your life depends upon it BECAUSE IT DOES.
