A Slippery Slope-Jeremiah 2: 4-13

Jeremiah says that forgetfulness leads to faithlessness and faithlessness to more forgetfulness.  When things are going well, our tendency is to forget the hand of God that blesses us and to think we are the cause of our own success.  That gets us thinking, ever so subtly, that we deserve what we have.  But sooner or later, that empty logic leaves us empty too.  Rather than going to back to the root of the problem, we turn our attention to superficial things to fill the emptiness.  We start making happiness the object of our pursuit instead of the result of our obedience.
