Did you notice Jeremiah’s question of God at the beginning of Chapter 12? We have already seen this question come many times in our read through the bible. I think it is the question most people ask who are trying to follow God but see it as a limiting act. The truth is that following God is freeing (if done correctly). We get so tied up in the materialism and fame that the world offers that we quickly forget that this life is not even measurable on the timeline of eternity. We live for something else. Honestly, why do evil people prosper? Who cares, because I’m living for something much more valuable. Think of it as delayed gratification!
