Real Understanding

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!


Jeremiah 9:24

But let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord.


The Lord spoke to His people through the Prophet Jeremiah in a time when they were in great rebellion against the Lord. With a broken heart, God said those who boast let them boast with “Real Understanding” that I’m the Lord who operates with justice, kindness, and righteousness. These attributes bring Me great delight.


It sometimes feels to me that the more knowledge we accumulate the dumber we act. The idea that “Understanding” is at the heart of our communication is a complete misnomer. Honesty demands that we step back and analyze the problem. The problem is selfish, greedy, you first, after ME pride! When pride dominates, UNDERSTANDING evacuates. “Real Understanding” says God is the dispenser of Justice, Kindness, and Righteousness. Without God we don’t have those attributes, and without those attributes society is thrown into the trash. Let’s get back our “Real Understanding!”


Dear Jesus,

This AM I’m refreshed in my heart to remember that what I long for is Justice, Kindness, and Righteousness. In other words, what I really long for is YOU! Amen
