Once again, God is calling His people to a "defining" moment. A "straighten up and fly right or else" moment. One of those moments that parents often put before their kids ... with mixed results.
I believe that God hopes we can change our ways without a "defining moment" but it is often very difficult, particularly, I am sure, with addictions. Jeremiah has been full of God's warnings through His prophet but with mixed results as they went on to continue to worship Baal and others.
Has there been a defining moment in your life or is there one yet to come? How possible do you think change is without a defining moment -- a line drawn in the sand, life will never be the same again kind of moment?
