Perhaps

Re: Verse reading – Jeremiah 36 (Day Seven)
“PERHAPS when the people of Judah hear about the disaster I plan to inflict on them, each of them will turn from his wicked way; then I will forgive their wickedness.”  (v 3)  A very hopeful word.  Hope full.  Made possible by the mind and mercy of God.  Even when judgment is decided, even when past experience suggests futility,  God allows the possibility that people will turn away from sin.  Perhaps if Jeremiah wrote the prophesies on a scroll, if the people could be reminded again by the rereading.  We see the same patience of God in our day.  “The Lord is not slow about His promise. . .but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance.”  (2 Peter 3:9)  So, no guarantee that your friend would listen if you tried again to talk of faith.  No certainty that he would accept an invitation to Bible study.  But, perhaps!
