Today you should read: Jeremiah 36:21-32
Here we see the foolishness of the king and his servants as they would cut out God’s Word represented in the scroll and use it as kindling for a fire. Part of the reason why this king did this, outside of a complete disregard for the Lord, was because of his pride in not believing that the invasion of Babylon would succeed.
Of course, this king would incur the wrath of the Lord for such actions and suffer such consequences such as having no heir to succeed him nor even having a proper burial. But Jeremiah would be used by God to create a second scroll with similar words to the one that was burnt and as we all know and should remember, God’s Word will endure long past us.
This is why it’s important that we read it, study it, meditate on it, memorize it, pass it down to our kids, share it with others, put it in the hands of others who don’t have that and teach it as a church and in discipleships. God’s Word endures forever.
