Jeremiah 21-22

When I completed these chapters, a thought crossed my mind:

Why do we always think of God’s judgments as harsh? Why do we question His actions or say that these sections of Scripture are difficult to swallow?

God’s judgments are righteous and true altogether.

He chose a people. He set them apart for Himself. He gave them a land, an inheritance, promises and blessings. And rather than obey Him and express gratitude, they turned their backs on Him. They wouldn’t listen to Him or obey Him. They turned after other gods and served them instead.

That being the case, how are His judgments not just?
