Jeremiah 9:14 But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, And after Baalim, which their fathers taught them: 15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, And give them water of gall to drink. 16 I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: And I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them.
These people are suffering the consequences of their sins. You worship other gods and it will not go well with you if you are His people.
The thing that most grabs my attention is that they are doing what their parents taught them to do. Maybe it was by example. Maybe it was by actual teaching but regardless the parents have led them down the wrong path.
Do I take seriously the role I play as a parent? Do I consider the consequences of my actions not only in my life but in the life of my children and grandchildren?
God will be worshipped by Israel but not till these people have suffered the consequences of their sin to the point that they turn around!
