March 8, 2018 (Jer 7:23-28)

In today’s reading, Jeremiah reports how disappointed God is with the peoples’ inability to keep the covenant. They are slow to take correction. The people turn to themselves and not to God. Jeremiah has defined what sin really is: a turning away from God. During Lent, we need to correct the way we turn. In the words of Jeremiah, Lent is an opportunity to take correction, turn once again to God, and make faithfulness appear again.
