The Loss Of Shame – Jeremiah 8:12

Were they ashamed when they acted so abhorrently?
They weren’t at all ashamed.
They can no longer feel humiliation.
Therefore, they will fall among the fallen.
When I punish them, they will collapse,”
says the Lord.

Jeremiah 8:6

I have paid careful attention.
They do not speak what is right.
No one regrets his evil,
asking, ‘What have I done? ’
Everyone has stayed his course
like a horse rushing into battle.

The loss of shame is potentially the last step toward destruction. It is indicative of a completely deceived heart that is calloused over and cold. Any remnant of moral fiber is gone. It is a terrible place to be.

Shame serves the purpose of drawing us back to Father God and His truth. When it is lost, so are we.
