WEEKLY DEVOTIONAL

Broken – Battle Buddy
 
- Jeremiah 9:1, 10-11 ESV
 
When I was growing up, men didn’t show much emotion. My dad’s generation was tough. They endured the Great Depression. They worked hard on the farm. Then they went off to fight in World War II. Very rarely did you see a man weep. I suspect most men viewed showing emotion as a sign of weakness. Our current generation is not much different. For most men, weeping is still viewed as weakness.
 
Yet, the first thing we read in Jeremiah 9 is that the prophet of God is weeping. He wasn’t just shedding a tear; his eyes were a “fountain of tears” day and night. It is in passage and a few others in the book of Jeremiah that he earns his reputation as the “weeping prophet.” Why was Jeremiah weeping? He was weeping over the people’s sins and the destruction their sinfulness had brought upon them. In verses 2b-8, he lists the people’s spiritual adultery with idols, their deception, oppression, and treachery.
