My People are Foolish #304

“For My people are foolish, They have not known Me. They are silly children, And they have no understanding. They are wise to do evil, But to do good they have no knowledge.” (Jeremiah 4:22)

Is it possible for the people of God to forget their God? Yes. It happen to Israel when they did not keep “His commandments, His judgments, and His statutes” (Deut. 8:11). That awful condition is where Jerusalem found herself in the days of Jeremiah. Christians today (like Jerusalem then) can succumb to the allurement of sin. We become “silly (foolish) children” when we serve evil instead of the will of God. In her hardness of heart, Jerusalem became “wise to do evil” but ignorant of God and His good will. We must heed the warning. Do not play around with sin. It will turn you away from God and turn you into a fool.
