Reading the Old Testament book of Lamentations requires a box of Kleenex tissues. The prophet Jeremiah, known as the weeping prophet, grieved the spiritual decline of God’s people that led to the destruction of Jerusalem by the ruthless Babylonians.
Sadly, God’s people did not heed the many warnings sent by the Lord through His prophets. Instead, they stiffened their necks, hardened their hearts, and deafened their ears to the word of God. Their rejection was almost unbearable for Jeremiah, who carried a burden from the Lord and a message for His people for forty years.
What burden has God placed on your heart? Where are your tears for spiritually lost people?
