March 17, 2018 (Jer 11:18-20)

Jeremiah had a thankless task of delivering a message , often of gloom and doom, that the people did not want to hear. He had to tell them how far they failed to live up to the covenant and had to reform themselves. Instead of heeding the call, they punished him and plotted to kill him as we hear in this section from the Book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah had to preach as God wanted him in spite of everything. He had a trust in God. This makes him more like Jesus than any other prophet. Jesus trusted in His heavenly Father explicitly. What keeps us from placing ourselves fully at God’s disposal? Even when things seem impossible, we need to trust in God like Jeremiah and Jesus Himself.
