As I was reading through Jeremiah this week, this verse struck me as a verse that applies to our culture today:
Were they ashamed when they committed abomination?
No, they were not at all ashamed;
they did not know how to blush.
Have we become like this? Are we desensitised to our own abominations against the Lord? Do we see sin as shameful? Do we remember how to blush at things that should not be spoken about in certain settings?
If we're not careful, we can easily become calloused to those things that should make us blush.
