Journey Into God’s Word #26
It is so difficult to find real compassion today. So many people are totally indifferent to human suffering. What a contrast the attitudes of most people are to that of Jeremiah. Even though he had tried to warn the people of Judah over and over of the suffering that was to come, if they didn’t repent, he still wept over them when it actually came. The compassion this “weeping prophet” had is shown to us in the book of Lamentations.
