Jeremiah 8:6 I hearkened and heard, but they spake not aright: no man repented him of his wickedness, saying, What have I done? every one turned to his course, as the horse rusheth into the battle.
The people would not respond correctly to the Word. They knew what they should do. They didn’t want to do it. They chose to ignore God and to not repent. They chose to rush into doing whatever it was that they liked to do.
That is so much our story. We hear but do not listen. We sit there and it seems like we should grow but we do not. Then we get our opportunity to show what we have decided and what we have learned and run to our own way.
The very definition of sin is doing things our own way instead of His way! They not only turned to their course but they rushed.
What will you do as you hear the Word today?
