Sucks to be God’s messenger. Last chapter Jeremiah discovered there was a plot to kill him for speaking God’s word.
This chapter he argues with God’s over the fairness of his message. He asks why God people have to suffer. He’s the meat in the sandwich, but such is his calling I suppose.
God’s answer is a) there are a lot less good people than you think, and b) there will be a restoration and compassion after the invasion.
I’m now being paid to write about God’s work and his nature, it’s an extraordinary privilege for a believer. May I remain faithful and true like Jeremiah.
