Two Baskets of Figs

No, I don't have two baskets of figs, lol. I was reading Jeremiah Chapter 24 in my devotions this morning.

The Lord used these baskets of figs to help Jeremiah understand why God choose to lead some of Israel captive and some stayed. Verses 5-7 says... "Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel; Like these good figs, so will I acknowledge them that are carried away captive of Judah, whom I have sent out of this place into the land of the Chaldeans for their good. For I will set mine eyes upon them for good, and I will bring them again to this land: and I will build them, and not pull them down; and I will plant them, and not pluck them up. And I will give them an heart to know me, that I am the LORD: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God; for they shall return unto me with their whole heart."

I really don't want to elaborate on these verses and get something wrong, since I have not really studied it out. It just blessed me to see how God works.
