For the last two weeks the men's discipleship group at my church has been meditating on Jeremiah 17:5-8. In light of all the media attention given to the inauguration as well as some personal things happening in my life (as things happen in every one's lives) these verses were very timely in God's Providence. I'm going to finish off this weekend ruminating on the verses and being thankful. Thoughts on these verses anyone?
Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
