A monument to our stupidity

"They have stumbled off the ancient highways
    and walk in muddy paths.

Therefore, their land will become desolate,
    a monument to their stupidity.
All who pass by will be astonished
    and will shake their heads in amazement." - Jeremiah 18:15-16

Reading these verses from Jeremiah 18 I couldn't help wondering how relevant they are to our society today. People have chosen their own paths and instead of walking in ancient paths, have chosen to walk along muddy pathways. 

And in the end, our choices will come back to haunt us and they will be left as monuments to our stupidity! Future generations will look at what has happened and will shake their heads in astonishment.

Lord, have mercy on us.

Living in Grace
