Time: 9:30 AM
Weather: Still snow on the ground
Readings: Jeremiah, chapters 41-44
“This is the Message of God, God-of-the-Angel-Armies, the God of Israel: ‘So why are you ruining your lives by amputating yourselves – man, woman, child, baby – from the life of Judah, leaving yourselves isolated, unconnected?”
- In this verse God is reprimanding the people of Judah for moving to Egypt. Regardless of our race or location, however, this verse still applies to us.
- This verse serves as a reminder to seek God’s counsel before we make any major life decisions. It also reminds us the importance of surrounding ourselves with positive, influential people. That is why the bible stresses the significance of regular Christian fellowship and the quality of your spouse.
I feel rested and encouraged today.
