"Woe is me now!"

You have to feel for Baruch.  He had attached himself to Jeremiah and his ministry.  I do wonder what he must have thought about as they embarked on this incredible journey together.  Even though God was pretty clear with His instructions and what they were to expect, I doubt he could envision early on how it all would develop.  I dare say, he might have had second thoughts.

Quitting The Ministry

No … but I do have some thoughts.

I’ve been enjoying greatly my reading through Jeremiah.  I love him because he’s just so …human.

Jeremiah reached the point where he had enough. He was considering calling it quits.  He pours out his soul when he says:  “I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name.”  Jeremiah 20:9
