The people would not inquire of the LORD nor listen to his prophet. Their worldview was upside down. They were God’s creation, yet they regarded him as the thing created. Listen, secular humanists and Marxists! They were made by God’s wisdom, yet they thought they could outwit him. Listen, New Age practitioners and Animists!
LORD, help us, your people — to keep our orientation correct — to always submit to you as our creator.
