This is what the LORD says: ‘Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.’ -Jeremiah 6:16a
I love this verse. It’s encouraging. It’s hopeful. However, if we don’t read the last part we will miss the point: “But you said, ‘We will not listen.'” -Jeremiah 6:16b
Ouch. The LORD was talking to his people Israel, but isn’t the same true for our nation? God is wanting us to live a life of abundance, but instead we live selfishly, wanting to satisfy our cravings with the next thing that crosses our path. But God wants us to walk the ancient path, the good path. He loves us more than we could think or imagine. 💞
