Lamentations 3:27-29 (JDV)

Lamentations 3:27 It is good for a man to bear the yoke while he is still young.
Lamentations 3:28 Let him sit alone and be silent, because God has disciplined him.
Lamentations 3:29 Let him put his mouth in the dust ā€“ perhaps there is still hope.

Young men and women should not be isolated from the stark realities of life — especially the reality of God’s judgement upon a nation for her sins. Instead, we should encourage the young men and women to stop and contemplate. Maybe there is still hope for us if our young men and women will listen when the old folks would not.

Lord, lead us to repentance and submission to you — especially those who are tempted to put off thinking about you.
