66. We do not listen to God
Here’s a confession of the people:
We did not heed the voice of the Lord, our God, in all the words of the prophets whom he sent us, but each one of us went off after the devices of our own wicked hearts, served other gods, and did evil in the sight of the Lord, our God. Baruch, chapter 1, verses 21 to 22
It’s automatic, whenever people shy away from God’s will, the danger is real to get lost and seek compensation elsewhere.
God created us (creates), our body, our soul and our spirit. But if our judgment is not in conformity with his, our existence doesn’t always demonstrate what is of God. Even though we have received everything from God, all too often we are not conscious about it. We are then influenced by many ways and many discordant voices that have nothing similar to the will of God.
We are told:
“We have been disobedient to the Lord, our God, and only too ready to disregard his voice.” Baruch, chapter 1, verse 19
We turn easily from the goal and we risk a lot by not planting our roots in God. Let’s go back to our roots, back to the Heart of Jesus.
In order to discern, let’s listen to the voice of the Lord.
