They Say

“They offer superficial treatments for my people’s mortal wound. They give assurances of peace when there is no peace.” – Jeremiah 6:14 [NLT]

This verse reminds me of a certain type of person, one who offers up assurances that turn out to be false. Here there were people saying that everything was alright when everything was not alright. We can say that something is true, but that does not make it true. We can say that there is peace when there is no peace. We can say that things are one way, when there are quite opposite. We can say a lot of things.

Today let us remember that there are a lot of superficial words being spread in this world and then there is the Word of God. Let us put our trust in Him and His Word and be mindful that when someone says something is alright, it doesn’t mean it is alright. When someone says something is true, it does not make it true. Trust in Him.
