Jeremiah 38: Jeremiah in the Dungeon

Published

on

Let this man be put to death. The princes accused Jeremiah of speaking discouraging words to the soldiers. If the soldiers listened, they would not defend the city.

The fear of losing the protection of the warriors of Judah was the reason why the death of the prophet was decreed(v.4).

Even though Zedekiah had handed Jeremiah over to his officers, no one was able to kill him.

He was thrown into a dungeon that was originally a deep hole made to store water. But there was no water there, and since it was a dry season, there was only mire.

As the King entered the city, everyone offered their best to honor him.

Genesis 20: Abraham and Abimelech

Published

She is my sister. In a moment of weakness and fear, Abraham did not reveal that Sarah was his wife. By doing this, he not only put her at risk, but God’s entire project for humankind. With Abraham and Sarah, the Lord intended to create a people, through whom the Savior would be born.

Because of this, He did not allow Abimelech to touch her.

This teaches us to always have the courage to tell the truth, even when we could be adversely affected by people’s reaction.

“White lies” and “half-truths” will cause damage. This is why our response should be a clear yes or no.
