Today’s Reading – Jeremiah 46-48
See the picture?
Falling like dominoes.
John Wesley wrote in his notes on this verse
Stumbled — Stumbling one upon another, so that both those that went before, and those who followed after, should fall together
Jeremiah is delivering a prophetic message to the nations and chapter 46 details the judgement coming for Egypt. The image in verse 12 drew me in today. Especially the commentary made by John Wesley.
How often when we live outside of a relationship with God do we find ourselves stumbling around seeking meaning and purpose?
I think we all have been there at some point. The problem is when we are stumbling who do we go for to gain strength and direction.
The picture is that if you go to direction from others who are stumbling you simply topple over one another.
God constantly calls out to those that are stumbling and wandering, “Come to me!”
Don’t wander alone. Find a church home.
Find a small group led by a grounded Christian teacher/leader.
No need to topple over – Stand Firm!
