Baruch, Jeremiah’s secretary, calls the community to repentance for their past sins. He makes a plea for repentance. If only the people would return to God and be faithful to His covenant. He says the same words to us. We all need to return to God; we are all in need of conversion. God is just and merciful, and, even better, is generous. Let us allow God to be generous in our lives and accept his graces.
