The Way Home

The Lord speaks to Jeremiah; He says to him that His disappointments are great. He looks “down” and takes note that His people have no understanding; in fact they are “wise to do evil,” but have no real sense of doing good (Jeremiah 4:22). When one is so bent on trying to get ahead, when one is son interested in trying to out maneuver another, when one is interested in planning schemes in order for advancement, have these people (or should I say “we”) lost sight of what is good? Those who have lost sight are inviting themselves to lose their way. When their way is lost, how will they know the way back home?
