Today we read the second chapter of the Apostle Paul’s first letter to Timothy and two chapters of Jeremiah.
1 Timothy 2. Paul reminded the believers to pray for all, including the people of authority. Then he explained the roles for men and women in the Church.
Jeremiah 7. The prophet reminded the reader that false religion is worthless, and proclaimed judgment on perverted religion.
Jeremiah 8 tells of the valley of slaughter, of sin and punishment and ends up with the question : “Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there?“
