July 20: Getting Caught

Scripture Lesson: Jeremiah 5:20-31

On this date in 1944, St. Louis Browns pitcher Nels Potter was banned from play for 10 days, becoming the first pitcher ever to be suspended for throwing a spitball. The spitball, “shine ball,” and “emery ball” were outlawed by the Major League’s Joint Committee in 1920. Surprisingly, though, 17 pitchers currently using the doctored pitches were allowed to continue to throw them until they retired.

The prophet Jeremiah was instructed to tell the people of Israel that God knew what they were doing. They had turned away from God and chosen to do wrong, worshiping other gods. They should have known better than to think they could fool God. Jeremiah made it clear that God knew all along, and that the people who had stubborn and rebellious hearts were about to pay the consequences for neglecting God’s way. The Lord was going to punish them for their sinful ways.

  1. While growing up, did you ever think you had pulled one over on your parents, only to discover that they knew what you had done? How did that feel?

  2. Will our sins catch up to us? How?

  3. What does Jeremiah say that our sins deprive us of in life?

Our sins will always find us out. We can never fool God. The consequence of our sin is to be separated from God and all the good He wants to do for us.
