Walking Off Course
|Jeremiah 9 (NKJV™)|
|12||Who is the wise man who may understand this? And who is he to whom the mouth of the LORD has spoken, that he may declare it? Why does the land perish and burn up like a wilderness, so that no one can pass through?|
|13||And the LORD said, "Because they have forsaken My law which I set before them, and have not obeyed My voice, nor walked according to it,|
|14||"but they have walked according to the dictates of their own hearts and after the Baals, which their fathers taught them,"|

The last several weeks we've looked at those who "Walked with God". Through the daily grind of life, with people who hardly think about God, these folks pursued God with a passion. But what happens when one doesn't? What are the downward steps of a person or nation when they don't "Walk with God"? God outlines the steps of a nation that walked off course.
