Jeremiah 40-45 (The Daily Walk Bible).

Jeremiah 42 shows us the futility of trying to fool God. He knows our hearts.

“We will obey, whether we like it or not!” (42:6)

“You were deceitful…you will not obey the Lord your God any better than you have in the past!” (42:20-21)

And they didn’t!

The one person we can’t fool by pretending to be holier than we really are is God!

(Jesus warns us that we shouldn’t try to fool other people either in Matthew 6.)
