Jeremiah 2:4-13

“Examine your foundations.”
God tells the families of His people.
Stop being proud that the highest tower
In your nation is the steeple.

Appearances aren’t always great
At measuring what’s inside
God has seen through every way
Adams’ children have tried to hide

God has offered living water
We’ve been created for.
We’ve turned from Him to dig larger pits
Protesting “these will help hold more!”

Hear in these words the heart of God
Whose children have gone astray.
It’s not as simple as a child
Who chooses not to obey.

It’s an entire people
Who decide not to be alive.
Even though their father has made sure
In the promised land they’d arrive

He will not force His will on them
But on their behalf He’ll speak
And becomes His Loving Word in Flesh
Found by those who seek.
