Hi Victoria – I appreciate your insight on the passage in Jeremiah. I was encouraged how God meant this time of exile for Israel’s good. They weren’t to live a life of passiveness just waiting for redemption, but were to continue to be fruitful, contributing to their community and living peaceful, productive lives. This applies so much to our lives today as we live in a fallen world and long for Christ’s return. However, God has given us His word to resist sin and live in a way that honors Him and seeks the good of others. Not because we think we can make this world perfect, but because it glorifies God and advances His kingdom on earth.
