Jeremiah – “Lament for God’s People”
July 19th, 7th Sunday after Pentecost
“Lament for God’s People” Jeremiah 4:19-31, Matthew 25:1-13
Matthew 25 tells the parable of the ten bridesmaids. Five are foolish and get left outside as the wedding party commences. How must they feel? Jeremiah shares about what they might have felt like and certainly how we should feel like if we find ourselves unprepared and unable to participate in God’s saving work in the world.
