When we were new parents we logged every aspect of our new baby's life. Some family members mocked us, but for my husband and me it gave us a feeling of control -- as if by writing it down we could influence the outcome.

This Week's Challenge
Read Jeremiah 36-39. As you are reading, remember that the men described here really lived. They had real personalities and tendencies. They had real choices and they suffered real consequences.

Finally, remember if we don’t surrender to God’s way, we’ll be forced to surrender to the consequences of not surrendering to God’s way.
