That Hand Taste Good


"The people of Judah and the citizens of Jerusalem said,
'Come, let us contrive a plot against Jeremiah.
It will not mean the loss of instruction from the priests,
nor of counsel from the wise, nor of messages from the prophets.
And so, let us destroy him by his own tongue;
let us carefully note his every word.'"
-Jeremiah 18:18

Jeremiah was called to be a Prophet by the Lord and the very people he was called to help sought his own ruination. They sought to trap him in his own words and probably felt if they could show he is wrong in anyway then they do not have to listen to him. Here is a person called by God to help others grow in their relationship with God and each other and the very people he tried to help sought to do him damage. 

How many times do people do this to those who want to help them? Sometimes we are not ready to hear a particular challenge that the Lord is trying to offer through a specific person. So many times we attack the messenger because seeing the Truth can be a very painful event in our lives. Especially when we are stubborn and do not want to confront the issue that can be so obvious to those around us. Thank God I never have to go through this because I am always right and know everything. :0P

So I just wanted to say thank you to all those who have called me to more honest in my life and apologize to those who I might have hurt in that very same process.
