The Good Jew Seeking G-d
I was struck by Jer 2:
V5. What injustice did your fathers find in Me, that they went afar from Me and walked after emptiness and became empty?
Like Wow.... walked after emptiness..
v17 Have you not done this to yourself by forsaking the LORD your God when He led you in the way?
v19 Your own wickedness will correct you, and your apostasies will reprove you; know therefore and see what is evil and bitter for you to forsake the LORD your God, and the dread of Me is not in you, declares the Lord God of Hosts.
How sobering.... the dread of Me is not in you. What is the dread of God......
God wants His faithless sons to return to Him:
Jer 3:22 Return O faithless sons, I will heal your faithlessness, Behold we come to You For You are the LORD our God..
There is hope....not despair...Heal my faithlessness O Lord... Amen.
