December 9

Jeremiah 17:5
Thus says the LORD,"Cursed is the man who trusts in mankind And makes flesh his strength, And whose heart turns away from the LORD."

This just makes me sad. We know that we serve a loving and just God and for those who choose to live a life separated from Him, their life will be cursed, and they will receive the penalty from living that way. That penalty is hell. The great news is that you don't have to be cursed. You can turn from that cursed life and turn to Jesus. Placing your faith in Him and trusting in Him as your Lord and Savior will keep you from that separation, giving you an eternal home. My prayer is that we will be able to recognize who those people and we will share the Good News with them so that their names won't be the ones that come to mind when we read this verse.
