The Snare Of Pride

jeremiah-28_1

Hananiah proclaimed deliverance from the Babylonians. He spoke boldly in the name of the Lord (Jeremiah 28:2-4, NLT):

I will remove the yoke of the king of Babylon from your necks.”

I will bring back all the Temple treasures…”

I will bring [the] king of Judah, and all the other captives…”

I will surely break the yoke that the king of Babylon has put on your necks.”

Like Hananiah, it is possible to be confident, positive…and wrong.

Beware the snare of self-deception and pride.
