Morning Scripture Reading - Jeremiah 17:5-10

Jeremiah 17:5-10 New King James Version (NKJV)

Thus says the Lord:
“Cursed is the man who trusts in man
And makes flesh his [a]strength,
Whose heart departs from the Lord.
For he shall be like a shrub in the desert,
And shall not see when good comes,
But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness,
In a salt land which is not inhabited.
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not [b]fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
“The heart is deceitful above all things,
And [c]desperately wicked;
Who can know it?
10 I, the Lordsearch the heart,
I test the [d]mind,
Even to give every man according to his ways,
According to the fruit of his doings.
