Jeremiah was God's faithful prophet and he still got thrown into the mud pit etc.

Yup, and then under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, accused God of deceiving him! (Jer 20:7) As a friend of mine likes to say, "Put that in your pipe and smoke it." ;)

Life is about the cross, not the crown. That awaits us at the end of life. Job knew it well. So Jeremiah was called to be a prophet, but he was also called to suffer. He later was rescued only to end up in Egypt, where 'tradition' (with a small t) says that he was stoned to death.
