Today you should read: Jeremiah 11
In today’s world, it’s hard for people to hear things that do not agree with the way they think. It was no different in Jeremiah’s time. He was telling the people what the Lord told him to say, and most of the time it was not what they wanted to hear. He was often telling them how God was going to punish them for their constant rebellion.
When God told Jeremiah about the plots against his life, he had a couple of options. He could have chosen to live in fear and give in to their threats, but instead, he chose to stay loyal to God. He believed that if he did God’s will then he would be safe. In verse 22, Jeremiah’s decision proved to be the right one.
In today’s world of social media, people seem to be quicker to give their opinions than ever, but it is important that we stay unified in Christ. James 4:11-12 says,
“11 Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. 12 There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?”
We will not agree on everything, but we should remember that we are one in Christ.
