"Today’s passage highlights the contrast between God’s wisdom and man’s wisdom. Even the wisest king of Israel, famous King Solomon, failed to properly lead God’s people. We need more than wisdom to live a godly life, we need to be obedient to the Word of God. Even when it may not always seem wise to us, that is when we need to trust in the character and nature of God. He alone knows the future; He alone can see clearly into the hearts of men and women. Jeremiah 17 reveals that the people have become established in their sinful ways, their sin is written on their hearts and on their pagan altars. Later in the chapter, the righteous man is envisioned as a tree planted by a river, an image used several times in the Bible. This tree sends its roots out toward the river so that it has a constant source of water and is not reliant on rain or seasons alone. This image highlights the wisdom of a man or woman who follows God’s plan, no matter what season of life we find ourselves in, our roots are close to the source of life, to our Heavenly Father.
