Jeremiah repeatedly calls the people of God back to obedience. One day he uses an outsider people group and their family traditions as the challenge and inspiration. It is an example for us to consider as well. Don’t ignore God’s invitation to full obey him and live in his ways. From Jeremiah 35.

The Christmas story includes an insecure king who wanted his name to be great. In the end he becomes a largely forgotten ruler in the shadow of a baby whom we still celebrate as the King above all kings.
