“Thus says the LORD: ‘Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD.'” (Jeremiah 9:23-24)


“There was one central pleasure in the life of the prophet that eclipsed all of the pain and rejection and failure that were forced upon him. He had an intimacy with God. When he was doing what he was commissioned and designed to do, Jeremiah felt the pleasure of God.” Dr. John Guest
