Jeremiah 12 – 14
Thursday, March 2
Have you ever been attacked? Jeremiah has been attacked by the enemy, his own people and his own family. When that happens we often want to attack back or we want to change them, but God says only he can change someone (13:23). But in chapter 14 God reminds us that we should recognize not only our own sin but the responsibility we have for it. Too many times we try to change others but we don’t ask God to change us.
What responsibility do you take for the sin you have in your life?
Do you blame others? (14:13)
What do you think when God tells Jeremiah not to pray for the sparing of Judah? (14:10-12)
