Jeremiah 36

God tells Jeremiah to write all these prophecies on a scroll.

Jeremiah hires Baruch to scribe it all on the scroll.

The scroll is read at the temple, read to the king’s officials, confiscated, read to the king, and burnt.

God tells Jeremiah to write it all again.

Baruch scribes it all again.

Today, we are reading a translation of that copy.

LESSON: When God speaks, listen.

Sometimes your best work ends up going to the fire. Sometimes even better work comes out at the end.

Also remember, God’s work will never be thwarted, halted, or annihilated. It will always survive.
