Jeremiah 17:5-8 – What is true blessing and how do we get it? Is success having a strong family, a good career, and lots of money? Jeremiah describes the man who is blessed and who is not blessed.
1) Those who are not blessed put their hope and trust in man. They use human reasoning and principles for life. Their hearts continually stray further and further from the Lord.
2) The blessed man’s hope is in the Lord. Their faith and hope are in the Lord. His dependency is in the Lord alone.
