19:5- The people of Judah and Jerusalem had done some terrible things. They were offering their sons and daughters to be burnt in offerings to foreign gods. Wretched, heinous, awful. God didn’t command it, decree it, nor did it even come into His mind.
20:6- Can you imagine having your life summarized and predicted to end this way? And you’re a pastor of all things?
20:8-9- Sometimes I feel like Jeremiah does here. I cannot hold it in any longer. I have to write. I have to speak. I have to create. Even if it’s not the message everyone wants to hear.
