Jeremiah preached to the people in hopes that they would turn from their wickedness.

Instead of being appreciative for Jeremiah looking out for them they ridiculed his efforts and completely rejected his warning. 

Jeremiah talked to the Lord about how their rejection made him feel: dejected and angry. 

Here’s the thing the Lord reminded me of: he didn’t hold Jeremiah accountable for their response. He kept using Jeremiah, he kept speaking through him. And Jeremiah kept doing as the Lord said. 

People won’t always respond as we hope but we need to keep preaching the gospel, keep sharing the love of God.
