Day 210

by Rev Joel Yong

Lamentations 1:1
How lonely sits the city that was full of people! How like a widow has she become, she who was great among the nations! She who was a princess among the provinces has become a slave.

A city that was once great, wallows in ruin.
All because Jerusalem disobeyed God.

When we disobey- we deem the “benefit” gained by breaking God’s commands to be a worthwhile gain.
Even the prodigal son who had an initial gain of a windfall after receiving his inheritance – wound up with swine.

It is foolish to think this way.
For the truth is- without God, we will have nothing.
