Lamentations 4:1-2 (JDV)
Lamentations 4:1 How the gold has become tarnished, the fine gold become dull! The stones of the temple lie scattered at the head of every street.
Lamentations 4:2 Zion’s precious children – once worth their weight in pure gold – how they are treated like clay jars, the work of a potter’s hands!
The destroyed temple was a symbol of the destroyed people — discarded like empty clay jars. Do you feel like that? Pray this prayer with me.
Lord, we feel discarded, deemed worthless by the world around us. We need your restoration. We long to be acknowledged as your precious children again.
