Practical Points To Ponder


1.  Spiritual leaders are held to a high standard. God will deal severely with them if they mislead or mistreat His people                                                                                                                   Jeremiah 23:1-2.


2. God is working to save all those He has called to salvation                                   Jeremiah 23:3.


3.  God desires the leaders of His people to care for their needs, not to selfishly lead

     them astray                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Jeremiah 23:4.


4.  All of us will face the Lord on the Day of Judgement                                                     Jeremiah 23:6.


5.  When Christ returns in all of His glory, it will be far greater than when the

     children of Israel were released from Pharoah’s slavery                                                 Jeremiah 23:6-8.
