When somebody hits “reply all,” usually what you get just takes up space. Sometimes “reply all” makes it (unintentionally) funny or embarrassing. Or maybe even career-ending.
But every now and then, it’s like it was really meant for you.
Kind of like Sunday’s first reading (Jeremiah). God’s talking to Jeremiah, explaining how things work. And there’s a bunch of stuff about what Jeremiah’s doing.
But the beginning, about God knowing Jeremiah before he was formed in his mother’s womb? It’s like it was really meant for you. Because it was.
If I got to hear God talk about you and His plans for you, that part wouldn’t change.
