I wonder if one of the interns puts on a blindfold each day and opens up a Bible randomly and picks a verse that his his finger happens to land on. Sure, sometimes its a verse from a psalm or something from one of Paul's letters that at least seems like in and of itself it could mean something, but just as often it is something from 2 Kings or somewhere else that has something to do with genealogy or who knows what.
Today's verse is an excellent case in point:
Destruction upon destruction is cried, for the whole land is spoiled; suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment. Jeremiah 4:20
How often have I turned to this verse in my daily Bible reading for a little pick me up and encouragement. Nothing like the bitter and tragic destruction of ancient Jerusalem--including some dirty curtains--to make me feel like I'm closer to God and ready to take on the day.
Thanks News Press for aiding my spiritual life!
