This passage raises the question of where we put our trust. Few Christians believe in astrology, and we are unlikely to deliberately trust wickedness or evil. But, like the exiles in Babylon, we may unthinkingly adopt the values of the society we live in. Money, education, hard-work, and family are all highly valued by our culture, and none are evil in themselves. However, we miss the point when we place all of our reliance in them and let them become idols, as many people discover when faced with unexpected unemployment, sickness or family breakdown.
Like Babylon, we learn our values from childhood onwards. Where were you taught to put your trust as a child? What effect does this have on your life today? If you have children, or are involved in teaching or youth work, what are you teaching your young people? Is God challenging you to make any changes?
