band-aids on broken arms

IMG_1321Jeremiah 8:4-9:22


Even when the officials of the people understood that they were doomed and dying, they simply tried to calm everyone down with false assurances of peace.  But Jeremiah knew that there was no peace.  The people tried to heal broken arms with band-aids.  The LORD’s instructions were to gather everyone together for fasting and prayer, but the proud in Judah would not have that.  He instructed the women to practice dirges, because only death will follow when God’s people no longer pursue him.

LORD, give us eyes to see our true condition, and seek you as the only proper remedy.
