Jeremiah was called to a difficult and heart wrenching task, to witness to the fall of Judah, even the destruction of the temple. We too are challenged by this calling for Jeremiah's words of rebuke and warning should still cause us to take pause. How seriously do we pursue a life in keeping with God's will for our lives. We have been offered a relationship with God, a safeguarded and eternal relationship, but do we take from that relationship license to live however we wish or do we take from that relationship an imperative to live as God's people in the world as best we can?
