Disregarding the Word of God

I was reading through Jeremiah 36 this morning and it got me thinking. The Lord told Jeremiah to write on a scroll all the words of prophecy the Lord had spoken to him. Jeremiah calls the scribe Baruch and dictates to him what to write.

After the scroll is finished Jeremiah tells Baruch to take it to the Lord’s House and read it aloud. Word of mouth gets the scroll into the hands of Jehudi who reads it to king Jehoiakim. As Jehudi reads it Jehoiakim cuts it and burns it in the fire to show he is not afraid of the Lord.

It sounds incredible that this king would ask the scribes to tell him what God said and then show total disregard for it. But it makes me wonder how many times we do the exact same thing.

God tells me to love my enemies, sometimes I can’t say its love I feel when I think about them. God tells us to go and spread the good news of salvation, but there have been more times than I would like to admit that I ignored God’s prompting to speak about Him. I imagine all of us can think of times we took what God has said and disregarded it.

Just ask, do I tithe like God asks? Do I love like God asks? Do I share like God asks? The list can go on and on and if we are honest we all fail somewhere.

    I think we can not copy right, if it has it comes under the art or paintings or drawings of esthetic sense; only the draw back is that those should not be available in the existing system of copyrights protected arts.

  2. I just want to mention I’m all new to blogging and seriously savored you’re website. More than likely I’m going to bookmark your website . You really come with exceptional articles. Bless you for revealing your web-site.

    genial el video, lo veo justo en el momento en que sufrimos la falta de agua en nuestra ciudad desdee hace varios días, Quienes tienen el poder de deciir sobre esta reiterada rotura del acueducto que nos alimenta del vital elemento, se hacen los sordos y ciegos, no se hacen cargo de nada. pareciera que miran para cualquier lado , menos para las necesidades del pueblo.

  6. I really enjoy reading your articles. This is the information that should be taught in schools! It seems that they make history and civics deliberately boring. Or at the very least, they dry up the context so much that it makes it seem inapplicable to the standards of the day.

  7. Gran bell’episodio!I miei complimenti!E’ da qualche tempo che meditavo l’acquisto di un Media Center e finalmente mi sono fatto un po’ le idee più chiare. Ora avrai un altro rompi scatole in più a farti domande. Ah, ti ricordo che devi trovare la metafora per il Nat come hai fatto tempo addietro per il bilanciamento di carico…

  8. Me parece una idea muy buena, sobre todo para los que vivimos en pueblos más pequeños y no tenemos opciones de hacer este tipo de cursos de forma presencial….Las fotos de la página son preciosas y la web muy bonita!!
