In his message on the plain, Jesus gives blessings and praise to those who are following his example, and woes to those who are not. Neither they nor we should be surprised for Jeremiah spoke in a similar way centuries before. The Good New does not change, even if we don’t like what it means for us on temporal terms. The Lord has our eternal salvation in mind, and has secured it for us. Do we choose to follow? How can we best do it?
