What astonishes God?

People abandoning His fountain and digging their own water tanks (Jer. 2:12-13).

God calls heaven and earth to shudder with astonishment at four contrasts:

1.  Fountain drinking v Tank digging

Drinkers come with buckets to fill. Diggers come with shovels to dig. Drinkers are refreshed. Diggers are exhausted.

2. One fountain v Many tanks

We only need one fountain. There are never enough tanks.

3. Full fountain v Leaky tanks

The fountain is always running. The tanks are always running out.

4. Pure fountain v Poisonous tanks

The fountain is life-giving, but the stagnant muddy tank-waters are full of hidden death.

You carrying a bucket or a shovel?

You a drinker or a digger?
