Bible: Jeremiah 17:5-6
Individuals Are Challenged to Put Their Trust in the Lord 1
“I will put a curse on people
who trust in mere human beings,
who depend on mere flesh and blood for their strength, 2
and whose hearts 3 have turned away from the
17:6 They will be like a shrub 4 in the desert.
They will not experience good things even when they happen.
It will be as though they were growing in the desert,
in a salt land where no one can live.
