    Day 241 – Daniel and the Den of Lions

    Thoughts and Reflections Today we read about Zedekiah of which the final wave of deportations to Babylon takes place.

    Day 240 – Remaining Humble

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we are reminded in Proverbs that everything we do we should do for God. We are also told in Jeremiah that God is near and not just watching at some far along place. We should not take the name of the Lorn in vain. We should not use God’s name carelessly […]

  • Day 239 – Hannah, Mishael, and Azariah

    Day 239 – Hannah, Mishael, and Azariah

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we read about how the king of Judah calls for repentance. The people that are part of the covenant with the lord are called to be faithful and take care of the poor, orphans, widows, and strangers. We must care for those who have no one to care for them. In […]

  • Day 238 – Fall of Jerusalem

    Day 238 – Fall of Jerusalem

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we read that Jeremiah is put in the stocks. He is hurt by this and reaches out to the Lord saying “you have deceived me.” Jeremiah is surrounded by false prophets who have no problem with lying. They falsely proclaim that God will deliver his people from Babylon. Jeremiah again reiterates […]

  • Day 237 – Water from the Temple

    Day 237 – Water from the Temple

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we read how Jeremiah compares Israel to a potter’s clay, which can be reworked into anything the potter chooses. God is the potter and he can shape us into the future he wills for us. There is also plotting against Jeremiah by those who trusted in the falsehoods they have heard […]

  • Day 236 – Rich in Love

    Day 236 – Rich in Love

    Thoughts and Reflection Proverbs remind us that there are things in this world that are more important than material goods — family, love, peace, joy, and the Lord.

  • Day 235 – Lying Prophets

    Day 235 – Lying Prophets

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we read that nobles send their servants for water but the cisterns are dry and they return with none. Similarly, if we have been unfaithful to the lord, we can find ourselves dry. We also hear of false prophets who are preaching lies to the people. They say compelling words that […]

  • Day 234 – Jeremiah Complains

    Day 234 – Jeremiah Complains

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we learn about the virtue of docility. A person who has a docile heart, is open to whatever God wishes to teach him or her. In Jeremiah we are asked if we cannon compete with certain people, then why should we compete with God? It is wise to acknowledge our limitations. […]

  • Day 233 – Correct Me, O Lord

    Day 233 – Correct Me, O Lord

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we read about how idolatry brought ruin to Israel. Those who turn to idols become like the idols themselves — foolish and stupid. If we give our hearts and minds over to anything other than God, we become foolish. If we give our hearts to anything, we give our minds to […]

  • Day 232 – Glory in Knowing God

    Day 232 – Glory in Knowing God

    Thoughts and Reflection Today we read that the injustice that surrounds Jeremiah does not make him angry, but rather it breaks his heart. He speaks about how people have grown accustomed to falsehood and cannot be trusted. When someone has shown that they are not trustworthy then we need to beware of that person. If […]
