A daily devotional through the Bible speaking with God as Adam and Eve may have in the garden east of Eden. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com
Babylon became arrogant. They became drunk with their power and thought their power came from their hand instead of God's. Nebuchadnezzar thought himself king of creation because of his exploits. So God had Jeremiah remind him that God was still in charge. God reminded Nebuchadnezzar that He would rule over creation and all the nations of the world as He sees fit. The Babylonians would find themselves defeated and destroyed the same way they destroyed others.
So you might ask, “What’s the point of this story for us today? Why include these verses for our study?” My answer is, be careful how you treat God's children. Who are His children? All His creation. Everyone He breathes life into has a living soul He longs to answer His call for salvation. He knows that not all will, but you don’t know who will and who will not. Be careful how you treat His children. All of them are His. He don’t want you to end up like the Babylonians.
